Bz South / Aurora Watch (March 1 @ 03:30 UTC)
The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) carried past Earth via the solar wind is currently tipped south. This is helping to enhance geomagnetic activity at higher latitudes. Sky watchers should be alert for visible aurora tonight.
Coronal Hole Update
A solar wind stream flowing from coronal hole #28 is predicted to reach Earth beginning on March 1st. An isolated period of minor (G1) geomagnetic storming will be possible. Aurora sky watchers at higher latitudes should be alert once dark outside.
