The solar storm of August 1st sent two CMEs toward Earth. The first one arrived yesterday, August 3rd, sparking mild but beautiful Northern Lights over Europe and North America (see below).
The second CME is still en route. NOAA forecasters estimate a 35% chance of major geomagnetic storms when the cloud arrives on August 4th or 5th. spaceweather.com
Amazing North lights show off August 4 - many people report the northern lights were at their highest yesterday as a result of the solar effects playing with out magnetosphere:
