Aurora & Meteor Photo OP ! 02-03MAR2011

Space Weather News for March 1, 2011 http://spaceweather.com
GEOMAGNETIC STORM:  A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field during the early hours of March 1st.  The impact sparked a polar geomagnetic storm that was, at first, minor, but the storm has been intensifying throughout the day.  If the trend continues, high-latitude sky watchers will likely witness bright auroras after nightfall on March 1-2. Northern-tier US states such as Maine, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Washington could be favored with photographic and/or visual displays.  Check http://spaceweather.com for updates.

***Readers and aurora viewers...If you capture meteors/fireballs while shooting the above expected aurora event tonight, I'd love to post them to my site (with full attribution of course!). Please e-mail them to wxtx01@gmail.com with details and let's get your work out there for everyone to enjoy! Thanks...ELPALLSKY***
