Quick update

The Solar Wind has now gone over 500 km/s and Kp = 3, the highest it's been since we first launched! For all of those in the northern part of the US, this gives you a better chance then there has been in a while to see the aurora tonight. Right now Bz is north (you are more likely to see the aurora if it's south), but this is changing frequently.
