The Earth was hit by a major solar storm today that has made Aurora, the glowing Northern Lights, visible in many Northern Hemisphere locations including Europe, the U.S. and the International Space Station (ISS).

Take your camera out and try to get some time exposures from a tripod. I last saw Aurora in VA (and photographed them) in 2003.
Let me know if you see any.
