GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS: Minor G1-class geomagnetic storms are in progress on May 10th in response to a CME hitting Earth’s magnetic field during the late hours of May 9th (2310 UT). The CME’s impact caused a 54 nT deflection of the USGS magnetometer in Corbin, Virginia–a significant jolt for such a low latitude. And, now, another CME is on the way. See below.
