CME IMPACT: As expected, a CME hit Earth's magnetic
field on Dec. 19th, and a second CME may be approaching. NOAA
forecasters estimate a 70% chance of geomagnetic storms in response to
the potential double-blow. This is not a major space weather event, but
it could produce bright auroras around the Arctic Circle before the
weekend is over. Visit Spaceweather.com for updates.
