> GEOMAGNETIC STORM:  A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field during the early hours of April 30th, sparking a G1-class geomagnetic storm. Northern Lights descended as far south as Michigan in the United States. High-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for auroras (http://spaceweatherphone.com) tonight as the solar wind continues to blow.  Photos of the April 30th display are highlighted on today's edition of http://SpaceWeather.com.
