early morning CME hit, on time for sunrise in Fairbanks.

The aurora came out last night in Fairbanks, but was not as a result of the CME. The CME hit a couple hours later, right before sunrise. Europe is seeing a show now, and in Alaska, we await darkness. We should be able to see auroras tonight. NOAA Spaceweather is calling this a G1 storm, so the whole state may or may not see a show. We shall see! We are on aurora watch come nightfall.

UPDATED: NOAA Spaceweather changed it to a G2 storm.
