The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field is tipped sharply south. A Moderate G2 (KP=6) Geomagnetic Storm is currently in progress. Be on the lookout for Aurora at high latitudes.
ALERT: Geomagnetic K-index of 6
Threshold Reached: 2012 Nov 14 0304 UTC
Synoptic Period: 0300-0600 UTC
Active Warning: Yes
NOAA Scale: G2 - Moderate
Potential Impacts: Area of impact primarily poleward of 55 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.
Induced Currents - Power grid fluctuations can occur. High-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms.
Spacecraft - Satellite orientation irregularities may occur; increased drag on low Earth-orbit satellites is possible.
Radio - HF (high frequency) radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes.
Aurora - Aurora may be seen as low as New York to Wisconsin to Washington state.
