Space Weather News for Sept. 26, 2011

GEOMAGNETIC STORM:  A strong geomagnetic storm is in progress following the 
impact of a coronal mass ejection (CME) today, Sept. 26th, at approximately 
12:15 UT.  Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab report a "strong 
compression of Earth's magnetosphere" and the possibility that satellites in 
geosynchronous orbit have been exposed to solar wind plasma and magnetic 
fields. Mid- to high-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras after 
nightfall. Observing tip: The hours around local midnight are usually best 
for spotting Northern and Southern Lights. Check http://spaceweather.com for 
images and updates.
