A coronal mass ejection (CME) is racing toward Earth and it could spark a severe geomagnetic storm when it arrives--perhaps tonight (Sept. 14th and 15th). People everywhere should be alert for auroras.

Something fun for a change! Sunspot 798 is earth-facing again. This is a very active sunspot producing many X-class flares (and messing with hf radio). If you're away from the city lights, take a look outside tonight before retiring you may be surprised!

I'm sure Howard Dean's behind this, given the President's press conference...

As can be seen on the NOAA
website, the aurora should be visible as far south as Northern California and Colorado, maybe as fas south as New Mexico.
