CME Strike Produces Auroras Seen from Space

Space Weather News for August 20, 2014

A minor CME hit Earth's magnetic field during the early hours of
August 19th. At first, the weak impact did little to stir geomagnetic
activity, but a geomagnetic storm has since developed as Earth passes
through the wake of the solar storm cloud. Astronauts on the ISS
report a gorgeous display of auroras seen from Earth orbit. Updates
and photos may be found on

AURORA ALERTS are available from (text)
