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.

No big CMEs, but GOES proton flux increases below S1 level. Studying these events may be another PhD thesis topic. pic.twitter.com/q4tconwmtA
