INTENSIFYING GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A G2-class geomagnetic storm is in progress as Earth plunges deeper into a fast-moving stream of solar wind.  This is sparking bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. The solar wind is flowing from a large canyon-shaped hole in the sun’s atmosphere and is expected to influence Earth for the next two days.
