Space Weather News for April 10th, 2003

AURORAS: Earth is entering a solar wind stream flowing from a large coronal hole on the Sun. Sky watchers should remain alert for auroras. The best viewing sites will be at high latitudes: e.g., New Zealand, southern Australia, northern Europe, Canada, Alaska and other northern US states like Wisconsin and Michigan. Forecasters say there is also a 10% chance of severe geomagnetic storming at middle latitudes.

JUPITER AND THE MOON: The waxing quarter Moon could make faint auroras hard to see. But it's still worth looking because on April 10th the Moon and Jupiter will be pleasingly close together in the night sky. Visit for sky maps and more information.
