GLANCING-BLOW CME: Polar geomagnetic storms are
possible on Nov. 18th and 19th in response to a glancing blow from an
incoming CME (coronal mass ejection). Auroras could appear in
northern-tier US states from Maine to Washington. Visit Spaceweather.com for more information.
LEONID METEOR SHOWER: This week, Earth is passing
through a stream of dusty debris from Comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle, source of
the annual Leonid meteor shower. This is not a "storm year" for the
Leonids. Forecasters expect a mild display of no more than 15 or 20
meteors per hour best seen during the dark hours before sunrise. Got
clouds? You can listen to Leonid radar echoes on Space Weather Radio.
