Be on the lookout tonight for a possibility of strong aurora activity Monday evening/Tuesday morning!
On Friday, two separate CME events were detected and projected to reach the Earth at some point later in the weekend. You can see the result of their arrivals in the Aurorasaurus Solar Wind Power plot above.
But wait, there’s more! A third whopper of a CME (coronal mass ejection) was detected early Saturday morning, and it looks like it is headed right for us. Arrival time is estimated between Monday June 22, 13:54 GMT and June 23, 02:23 GMT. Aurora hunters across the pond and in the northern Europe should look north tonight. Folks in the northern US should also keep their eyes peeled after sunset for aurora activity.
