Weekend Aurora Warning
23 Nov 2001
NORTHERN LIGHTS: A powerful solar explosion on Nov. 22nd hurled a coronal mass ejection (CME) into space and toward our planet - possibly joining another CME already en route. The expanding clouds could trigger geomagnetic activity when they sweep past Earth on Nov. 24th and/or 25th. High-latitude sky watchers are likely to see Northern Lights this weekend, especially during the hours around local midnight on Saturday and Sunday. Prospects for middle-latitude observers are less certain. Tune in to SpaceWeather.com for details and updates.
LEONID METEORS: For those who saw it, last weekend's Leonid meteor storm was simply unforgettable. Our growing photo gallery of the storm includes eye-catching photos of Leonid fireballs, exploding Leonids, even Leonids streaking through auroras. Check them out at SpaceWeather.com.
