The NASA Space Weather Laboratory reported that a massive Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) struck the Earth’s magnetic field at approximately 2PM EST on October 24th, 2011. The CME (solar storm) caused a geomagnetic storm that lit up the sky with dramatic Northern Lights (aurora borealis). Observers have reported vivid auroras as far south as Alabama and Georgia.
