Summary: This article that I have found talks about Dixieland Auroras when the Coronal Mass Ejection reached earth. When the Coronal Mass Ejection reached earth on November 20th, it casted a bright green aurora in the sky of Myrtle Beach. This green color in the sky is called the Aurora Borealis also known as the Northern Light. This Geomagnetic storm that hit earth is a M-class explosion, meaning that it was a medium size geomagnetic storm.

Analysis: Whoa! What is happening around the world these days Meteors hitting earth, geomagnetic storms out of nowhere, and now the sky is turning green. It is kind of facinating how the sky can turn green. Wouldnt it be cool if the entire earth turned green for like an hour or something People would think that it is the end of the world or something and a lot of people would think their hallucinating.
