A solar coronal mass ejection hit Earth's magnetic field at 0150 UT on Nov 6th (8:50 p.m. EST on Nov. 5th) and triggered widespread auroras. Observers as far south as central California have reported vivid Northern Lights. Sky watchers everywhere, even at middle latitudes where auroras
are rarely seen, should be alert for Northern Lights while the geomagnetic storm is underway. Visit SpaceWeather.com for details and updates.
