CME impact expected on Nov. 7th

Source - Space Weather News for Nov. 5, 2015:

INCOMING CME:  Sunspot AR2443 erupted yesterday, producing a CME that could deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on Nov. 7th. G1-class geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras are possible when the CME arrives this weekend.  Visit for more information.

TAURID FIREBALLS: The annual Taurid meteor shower is underway--and it is unusually good.  Observers around the world are reporting bright fireballs in the night sky as Earth plows through a swarm of gravelly debris from parent Comet Encke.  Forecasters say the display could continue until Nov. 10th.
