Geomagnetic Storm

Yup, it’s happening: a minor geomagnetic storm.

A shock in the solar wind passed earth late on October 8 (UTC) bringing unanticipated G1 (Minor) Geomagnetic Storm activity. The brunt of the disturbance is expected through the early hours of October 9 (UTC), then followed by a second pulse later on October 9.
