> Space Weather News for June 8-9, 2000
> Geomagnetic disturbances are finally subsiding after an interplanetary

> triggered intense aurora over sparsely-inhabited regions of northern Asia
> and the Pacific. However, by nightfall over North America conditions had
> quieted.  There is still a chance for isolated auroral substorms that might
> be visible tonight (June 8-9) at middle latitudes.
> The next opportunity for viewing aurora borealis may arrive as soon as June
> 10, when another solar wind disturbance is expected to reach Earth.  For
