If...

...your cell phone isn't picking up a signal today, blame the sun. We're currently experiencing a severe geomagnetic storm that allowed the aurora borealis to be seen as far south as parts of Texas.

It also turned the auroras red - a rare thing captured by ISS astronaut Scott Kelly.

Geomagnetic storms can disrupt satellite communications and cell phones, so if you think you have a couple less bars than normal - maybe you do.
