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 http://spaceweather.com 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.
