TARDY CME SPARKS BRIGHT AURORAS:  Arriving later than expected, a CME brushed against Earth's magnetic field on Nov. 9th, sparking a bright display of auroras seen mainly from Alaska. More auroras are in the offing as a new solar wind stream heads in our direction.  Estimated time of arrival: Nov. 11-12.
