Aurora Watch Sunday 22 June - Monday 23 June
(22 June) to early Monday morning (23 June). If aurora occur, this
may be visible in Tasmania, Southern NZ, and possibly Southern Vic,
WA and Southern North Island New Zealand.
Depending on when the incoming Coronal Mass Ejection strikes, we may
see minor storm periods in the late evening to early morning. The
Moon is at last Quarter Phase, so the skies will be fairly dark until
early morning. As always look to the south for shifting red/green
glows, recently beams have been reported too. As usual, dark sky
sites will have the best chance of seeing anything, and always allow
around 5 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted.
There is now an all sky aurora camera in Southern Tasmania at
Also Solar Maximum has *finally* arrived, but it is a pretty weak
one, one of the weakest for decades, but we may still see some nice
