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
