Early visit by the Polar Express?

10:40 PM 10/24/11 | Forecasters in the Southeast and readers in the Mid-Atlantic report northern lights across the region | This update posted at 10:05 AM with this report from Forecaster Daniel Ross in Atlanta, Georgia: 

"Thanks to a Coronal Mass Ejection from the Sun impacting the Earth's magnetic field, the Northern Lights have made a field trip South, with places as far South as Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi reporting sightings. If you can see it from your house, send us a picture." 

Forecasters and readers are posting on the event in their respective facebook pages, feel free to post your local imagery there for others to share. The image above is from a reader in Ontario, Canada. Other imagery has been reported in Dayton, Ohio; London, Kentucky and in the Southeast.  (Forecaster Foot)
