MAJOR FIREBALL EVENT: Two nights ago, a ~100 lb meteoroid traveling 53,000 mph hit the atmosphere over the southeastern USA and exploded, producing sonic booms and a fireball as bright as a full Moon.  Researchers are now scouring the countryside for fragments that could reveal the nature and origin of the meteoroid.  A movie, more information, and updates are available on http://spaceweather.com.

WEEKEND AURORA WATCH: A solar wind stream is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field  on August 30-31.  The impact could produce minor geomagnetic storms and auroras at high latitudes.  Geomagnetic storm alerts are available from http://spaceweathertext.com (text) and http://spaceweatherphone.com (voice).
