Aurora Genie & the Moon
A somewhat of a surprise for aurora sky watchers early Friday morning with a Moderate (G2) geomagnetic storm. High latitude sky watchers across Canada, northern parts of USA and Alaska were all treated to a nice aurora display. The awesome photo below was captured by Aurora Dora while in Talkeetna, Alaska. "The northern lights were all over and crossing the sky. But coming from “behind" the moon the Aurora was almost like the Genie of the Lamp, dancing and curving, and flirting with the moon." Impressive shot and thanks for sharing!

A minor (G1) geomagnetic storm watch will remain in effect for the next 12 hours while a high speed solar wind stream continues to move past our planet.

April 20, 2018 @ 11:00 UTC
Moderate Geomagnetic Storm
A high speed solar wind stream reached our planet this morning and a moderate (G2) geomagnetic storm is currently in progress. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for visual aurora if it is still dark outside.

ALERT: Geomagnetic K-index of 6
Threshold Reached: 2018 Apr 20 1044 UTC
Synoptic Period: 0900-1200 UTC
Active Warning: Yes
NOAA Scale: G2 - Moderate

April 18, 2018 @ 12:00 UTC
East Limb Activity
A potential sunspot is about to turn into view from behind the east limb. Perhaps a small uptick in solar activity during the next few days to relieve us from the relative quiet. Image below is courtesy of SDO/AIA.

April 17, 2018 @ 00:00 UTC
Another Coronal Hole Stream Incoming
Another coronal hole is now beginning to face our planet. A solar wind stream flowing from CH#90 is expected to reach our planet beginning April 19th. A geomagnetic enhancement possibly reaching minor (G1) storm levels will be possible. Perhaps some more good news for high latitude aurora sky watchers.
