A high speed solar wind stream coupled with periods of southward Bz, helped generate awesome aurora displays at high latidues Friday night and into Saturday morning. Mike Isaak in Alberta, Canada sends us the great image below he captured from Elk Island National Park after 5:30am local time. Visual aurora will be possible in the days ahead with a weak CME impact also possible during the next 48 hours. Stay tuned for more great imagery.
