AURORAS: As expected, a high-speed stream of solar wind (with a CME
embedded in the flow) hit Earth's magnetic field during the late hours
of Aug. 2nd. The resulting G1-class geomagnetic storm sparked bright
auroras across countries in Europe as well as several northern-tier US
states. The show might not be over. NOAA forecasters estimate a 55%
chance of similar storms on August 3rd as Earth continues to feel the
effects of the solar wind.
