Space Weather News for Oct. 2, 2002

AURORA WATCH: A solar wind stream buffeted Earth's magnetic field early Tuesday, Oct. 1st, and triggered a strong geomagnetic storm. Sky watchers spotted colorful auroras all the way from the Bering Sea to Arizona. Although the storm has subsided, Earth remains inside a gusty solar wind stream. More auroras are therefore possible on Wednesday, Oct. 2nd. Visit for updates and for pictures of the Oct. 1st Northern Lights.
