Either way expect amateur radio and GPS/GNSS issues starting around November 7. Aurora could be visible to mid-latitudes, with shows down to The Netherlands and mid-UK across the pond, Canada, & upper USA, like New York, Iowa, possibly even Colorado & Oregon! Expect storm effects to last through November 10.

NOAA analysts have modeled the trajectory of the CME and concluded that it will probably strike Earth’s magnetic field on Nov. 8th. The impact could spark G1-class geomagnetic storms and auroras at high latitudes.
