    Moderate Geomagnetic Storm in Progress
    An intense solar flare observed Wednesday evening is expected to cause strong geomagnetic storming Thursday into Friday. Geomagnetic storms on Earth can impede the operation of electrical grids and temporarily damage radio and satellite telecommunications. The NWS Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) continues to closely monitor and update forecasts and impacts as required.

    News of the Day:

    2014-01-09 20:02 UTC CME Has Arrived

    The coronal mass ejection (CME), originally expected to arrive around 0800 UTC (3:00 a.m. EST) today, January 9, was observed at the ACE spacecraft just upstream of Earth at 1932 UTC (2:32 p.m. EST). Itís too early to see much with respect to the magnetic structure of this CME, but short-term, high-confidence warnings will be issued as this event plays out. The original forecast continues to be for G3 (Strong) Geomagnetic Storm activity on January 9 and 10. Aurora watchers may be in luck for tonight. The ongoing Solar Radiation Storm, currently at S2 (Moderate) levels, is seeing a modest enhancement with this shock passage but remains below S3 (Strong) threshold at this time. Updates here as this event unfolds.

    If interested in more info as it comes available, I suggest
