Summary: A solar wind shock wave hit Earth's magnetosphere at approximately 0200 GMT on Saturday Nov. 4th (9 p.m. EST on Nov. 3rd). The impact triggered a modest G1-class geomagnetic storm. Sky watchers from New York to Oregon reported delicate red-colored Northern Lights for hours before the storm subsided around 0600 GMT. Saturday morning's solar wind impulse was the leading edge of a full-halo coronal mass ejection that left the Sun on Nov. 1st.
