      Editor's Note: Sometimes when astronomers work too many late hours, they
      get their dates wrong. That's what happened last night when I issued an
      Oct. 2nd space weather bulletin reporting auroras on Oct. 31st. (No one
      can forecast space weather that far in advance.) Here is a corrected
      version of the alert, with apologies for any confusion. --Tony Phillips

      AURORA WATCH: A solar wind stream buffeted Earth's magnetic field early
      Tuesday, Oct. 1st, and triggered a strong geomagnetic storm. Sky watchers
      spotted colorful auroras all the way from the Bering Sea to Arizona.
      Although the storm has subsided, Earth remains inside a gusty solar wind
      stream. More auroras are therefore possible on Wednesday, Oct. 2nd. Visit
      spaceweather.com for updates and for pictures of the Oct. 1st Northern
      Lights.
