Possible Aurora June 16-17 2012

An incoming Coronal Mass Ejection is expected to hit Earth on June 16th around 10:16 UT (that's 20:16 or 8:16 pm AEST).

Space weather predicts mild to moderate geomagnetic storms, with the possibility of aurora in high latitudes, IPS predicts merely "unsettled" for the 16th and 17th.

People in Tasmanian and Southern New Zealand should start looking to the south any-time after 8:00 pm, although often storms do not eventuate until late in the night around midnight or early morning the following day. Dark sky conditions are excellent for seeing aurora, should they occur.
