NLN Aurora Briefs – January 29, 2015

SWPC issued a Geomagnetic Storm Watch today for January 30th and January 31st. Potential Aurora activity from the Southern Hemisphere Coronal hole may happen any time between 7:00 PM Thursday night and 7:00pm Saturday evening Eastern time. The magnetosphere will be highly reactive to any potential disturbances – so any Earth-directed eruptions will increase aurora potential.

Two M-class flares, 15012802 and 15012806, erupted from AR 2268 today. Both were impulsive and did not produce CMEs.
