astroengine writes "On Tuesday, the Earth was hit by a coronal mass ejection (CME), triggering a "moderate" geomagnetic storm, igniting aurorae at high latitudes. The CME in question was launched from the sun early on Sunday and space weather scientists predicted its arrival on Aug. 3 — the vast magnetic bubble of solar plasma arrived on schedule."
