Magnetic Event Begins 04.20.99 1430 UTC
As of around midnight UTC [8pm EST last night], the magnetic field became more disturbed and the planetary magnetism readings went into "yellow" levels. This likely signals the beginning of the forecast CME disturbance from the 17th.
Magnetic storm watches are in effect from the SEC for both today and tomorrow. Kp readings of "4" have now been measured for the past 12 consecutive hours and "K=4" warnings have been issued by the SEC.

Possible CMEs, 4/13-14/99 that now affect earth
As of approximately 1500 UTC, 4/16/99 , a very sharp magnetic disturbance began to affect magnetometer readings at the GOES satellites. The readings are flucuating wildly between completely above and completely below the chart's limits New Millennium

|I have what is probably one of the best captures to date from the Fluxgate Magnetometer! Also, increased volcanic earthquake activity accompanied this sequence of major excursions of the geomagnetic field.|
