Solar wind speed of an incredible 720 km/s continues to bombard the Earth’s magnetosphere causing a geomagnetic storm and causing beautiful auroras as far south as England as a stream of gaseous material flowing continues to flow from a hole in the sun's atmosphere, see below...

Earth is inside a stream of solar wind flowing from the indicated coronal hole.
The speed of the solar wind is travelling at a mind blowing 712 km/s seen on the graph below provided by NOAA.


A wonderful map showing just where the auroras will be visible from as the solar storm continues
