Summary: On July 25, 2001, our planet entered a solar wind stream flowing from a coronal hole. Solar wind gusts triggered a brief G1-category geomagnetic storm around 0300 UT on July 26th. A few days later it happened again. Another coronal-hole-driven solar wind stream ignited brief Northern Lights over North America on July 31st.
