Coronal Mass Ejection Impact

Space Weather report that an interplanetary shock wave (probably the leading edge of a CME) hit Earth's magnetic field on November 12 at approximately 2300 UT, filling skies over northern Scandinavia with bright auroras

The site says more auroras are in the offing as Earth passes through the magnetized wake of the CME. Our planet's polar magnetic field is currently unsettled, and this could be a sign that storms are brewing at high-latitudes. Stay tuned for updates. Aurora alerts: text, voice.
