Space Weather News for April 7, 2004
AURORA WATCH: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hurled into space by a solar
explosion on April 6th is heading in the general direction of Earth. Sky
watchers should be alert for auroras when it arrives, probably during the
early hours of April 8th UT (for North Americans, that means during the
night of April 7th).
Earth is already skirting through a solar wind stream flowing from a
coronal hole on the sun. Because of this, geomagnetic storms and auroras
are likely, off and on, for the next few days. The best displays will be
at high latitudes--e.g., Canada and Alaska. When the incoming CME arrives,
auroras could descend to lower latitudes, too.

ISS FLYBY: And while you're visiting, be sure to check out a remarkable
movie of the International Space Station passing almost directly in front
of the planet Saturn. It was recorded by a German amateur astronomer
earlier this month.
