Source - Space Weather News for July 31, 2016: http://spaceweather.com GEOMAGNETIC
STORM WARNING: NOAA forecasters estimate a 65% chance of geomagnetic
storms on Aug. 2nd when a CME is expected to strike Earth's magnetic
field. A solar wind stream following close on the heels of the CME
could boost storm levels to G2 (moderately strong). High latitude sky
watchers should be alert for auroras.
