Wowee! It's been a crazy couple of days in terms of magnetic activity and Aurora! The storm, caused by the Earth moving through a coronal mass ejection peaked with a Kp value of 8 and has been the strongest geomagnetic storm of the current solar cycle. The storm put on a dazzling show reaching down as far as Kansas! Here's are the first batch of pictures that have been shared (plus some more from recent activity!). If you've shared images with us, don't worry, there'll be more posts on this one! Thanks go to John Andersen, Theresa Tanner, Leo Kokoh, Anna Basa, Kamalesh Maram, Mike Isaak, Natalia Korzhenevska, Joern Rohde, Joseph Chen, Michael Bisaga, Zoltan Kenwell, Bruce Smith, Christian Hering, Danelle Wiebe, Drew May, Isabell Hubert, Koushik Pal, Paul Zizka, Peter Stahl, Roshan Achal, Sharif Galal, and Walter Kardel.
