    GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS: G1-class geomagnetic storm is in progress on May 2nd as Earth enters a stream of high-speed solar wind. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras. 


    NEGATIVE MAGNETIC FIELDS SPARK AURORAS: For the past three days Earth has been passing through a region of interplanetary space filled with negative-polarity magnetic fields. This has caused intermittent geomagnetic storms and beautiful auroras around both poles. On May 2nd, Svante Sandström photographed this display over Västerlanda, Sweden: 


    "The auroras and their movements were absolutely stunning," says Sandström.


    "This could be the last performance of the season at our latitude," he adds. "Summer is coming, and the night skies are growing too bright for auroras."


    Earth entered this aurora-friendly region of space on Saturday, April 30th, when we crossed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet. Many people have never heard of the heliospheric current sheet. It is one of the biggest things in the solar system--a vast undulating system of electrical currents shaped like the skirt of a ballerina: picture. Earth dips in and out of it all the time. Currently, we are on the side of the current sheet containing negative-polarity magnetic fields. Such fields can open a crack in our planet's magnetosphere, allowing solar wind to pour in and fuel colorful displays. 


    During the current episode, Northern Lights have descended as far south as Michigan, while Southern Lights have ascended as far north as New Zealand. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% chance of more storms tonight.

    5/11/2016 We picked black berries yesterday and had them for breakfast today. Yum Also had our first watermelon (from Florida) which was very sweet. It's a good day.
