Tonight's Sky for September 16: Another Solar Storm

The third coronal mass ejection (CMEs) in a week is set to hit Earth's upper atmosphere today/early tomorrow morning. This comes on the heels of a pair of CMEs that hit last week and sparked displays of the Northern Lights (aurora) as far South as Arizona. As for the CME that is set to hit today, it is not as strong as last week's event but, needless to say, if your sky is clear, tonight's a good one to look up!
