    to bombard the Earth’s magnetosphere causing a geomagnetic storm and causing beautiful
    auroras as far south as England as a stream of gaseous material flowing
    continues to flow from a hole in the sun’s atmosphere, see below…

    Earth is inside a stream of solar wind flowing from the indicated coronal hole.

    The speed of the solar wind is travelling
    at a mind blowing 712 km/s seen on the graph below provided by NOAA.

    will be visible from as the solar storm continues
