A Nice Day For An Aurora

So, yesterday we had a massive geomagnetic storm which lasted for hours. Unfortunatey, for Australia it was during the day. Here's the Space Weather gallery of aurora from yesterday, and another set of nice aurora shots from Dennis Persyk.

Sunspot 930 spat out another X class flare, so be alert for aurora this weekend. The coronal mass ejection for this event was not directly aimed at Earth, so any geomagnetic storm won't be as big as yesterdays.

UPDATE: The CME is expected to hit sometime in the early morning of the 17th
