CME Strike Produces Auroras Seen from Space
Source - Space Weather News for August 20, 2014: http://spaceweather.com
A minor CME hit Earth's magnetic field during the early hours of August 19th. At first, the weak impact did little to stir geomagnetic activity, but a geomagnetic storm has since developed as Earth passes through the wake of the solar storm cloud. Astronauts on the ISS report a gorgeous display of auroras seen from Earth orbit. Updates and photos may be found on http://spaceweather.com
