GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS: A G1-class geomagnetic storm is underway on Feb. 19th as Earth enters a stream of fast-moving solar wind. G1-class storms are relatively minor and have little effect on satellites or global power grids. However, they can spark bright auroras around the Arctic Circle and confuse migratory animals that navigate using magnetism at high latitudes. Visit for more information and updates.
