Sky watchers at high, middle and low latitude regions in North America witnessed strong auroral activity on July 26-27, 2004. The source of this disturbance was a strong full-halo coronal mass ejection associated with the long-duration M1 solar flare of July 25. A solar wind speeds near 1000 km/s combined with a southward pointing interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) produced severe geomagnetic storm conditions (G4 on the NOAA scale) between 00:00-15:00 UTC on July 27.
