MAGNETIC STORM ON A COMET? Everyone knows about geomagnetic storms on
Earth. But did you know that comets can have them, too? Right now, a
type of magnetic storm may be in progress in the tail of bright Comet
Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2), causing "plasma blobs" and "disconnection events"
visible in amateur telescopes. Visit http://spaceweather.com for images
and more information.
