CME IMPACT: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetic field on
Sept. 30th. At first, the impact was weak and produced little effect,
but now (the early hours of Oct. 1st) moderately-strong geomagnetic
storms are brewing in the CME's wake. High-latitude sky watchers should
be alert for auroras, especially during the hours around local
midnight. Glare from the Harvest Moon will reduce visibility. Check http://spaceweather.com for photos and updates.
