UPDATE:

GEOMAGNETIC STORMS CONTINUE: G1-class geomagnetic storms are ringing Earth’s poles on Sept. 29th as a high-speed (600+ km/s) stream of solar wind continues to buffet our planet’s magnetic field.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM TODAY: As predicted, a high-speed stream of solar wind is buffeting Earth’s magnetic field today. Since it arrived on Sept. 27th, the stream has sparked G1- and G2-class geomagnetic storms and bright auroras around the Arctic Circle.  NOAA forecasters say the storms could intensify on Sept. 28th as the stream reaches peak speeds in excess of 700 km/s. High-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for auroras. Free: Aurora Alerts
