[Fwd: More Solar Eruptions on June 7, 2000]

> Space Weather News for June 7, 2000
> Following close on the heels of yesterday's two X-class solar flares, a
> third powerful X-class flare erupted today at approximately 1545 UT.  Soon
> afterward, coronagraphs on the orbiting Solar and Heliospheric Observatory
> detected a faint full halo coronal mass ejection. It appears to be heading
> in the direction of Earth at ~800 km/s.  This latest full halo CME will
> probably extend the geomagnetic disturbances expected to begin on Thursday
> when an interplanetary shock wave spawned by a CME on June 6 collides with
> our planet's magnetosphere.  Aurora watchers are advised to be on the alert
> for Northern Lights beginning after sunset on Thursday, June 8.
