From: Space Weather News for Sept. 9. 2011
GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A strong geomagnetic storm (Kp=7) is in progress following the impact of a CME during the middle hours of the day on Sept. 9th. This could be the first of several hits from a series of CMEs expected to reach Earth during the weekend. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras after nightfall. (Observing tip: The hours around midnight are often best for aurora sightings.) Check http://spaceweather.com for more information and updates.
UPDATE Saturday, Sept. 10 - There are reports (and photos) on Spaceweather.com from people in northern Michigan, North Dakota and Montana who were able to see the northern lights low on their northern horizons last night, just after dusk. Let's hope that the auroral oval pushes farther south so that we will be able to see the northern lights, too.
