OF MAGNETIC STORMS: A large coronal hole is turning toward Earth, and
it is spewing a stream of high-speed solar wind into space. NOAA
forecasters expect the stream to reach our planet on Oct. 25-26 with a
35% chance of geomagnetic storms when it arrives. Storm levels could
reach category G2, which means the glow of auroras might be visible not
only around the Arctic Circle but also in northern-tier US states such
as Minnesota and Michigan.
