GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A persistent G1-class geomagnetic storm on Oct 13th
(still underway as this alert is being written) has sparked bright
auroras around the Arctic Circle, spurring reports of Northern Lights
from Scandinavia, Greenland, Canada, and several northern-tier US
states. More auroras are in the offing. NOAA forecasters estimate a 40%
chance of continued storms on Oct. 14-15 in response to a high-speed
stream of solar wind. Check http://spaceweather.com for images and updates.
