Earth's magnetic field has been strongly disturbed since Monday morning, creating a geomagnetic storm seen in parts of the world.

This is a time-lapse video of a geomagnetic storm seen over Denmark.

A coronal mass ejection, or CME, caused it. That CME compressed the magnetosphere and ignited auroras.

To put that in more understandable terms, a geomagnetic storm is basically an interaction with the Earth's magnetic field.
