Last night, Feb. 23-24, observers across the western half of North
America witnessed a spectacular cluster of bright lights in the sky. It
was the re-entry and disintegration of a Chinese rocket body.
Coincidentally, a geomagnetic storm was in progress at the time and more
than one photographer caught the rocket's debris cutting across
curtains of Northern Lights. Visit http://spaceweather.com for photos and more information.
DID YOU MISS THE STORM? On Feb. 23-24, auroras appeared over many
northern-tier US States. Did you see them? Subscribers to our Space
Weather Alert Service were notified by phone while the storm was
