> 0410Z / 02 MAY AURORAL ACTIVITY SYNOPSIS:
>
>
>Auroral activity continued sporadically active over the last 24 hours.
>Most of the activity remained confined to the high latitude regions.
>Periods of additional sporadically active conditions are expected to
>persist through 03 or 04 May. We are expecting some minor effects from an
>Earth-directed coronal mass ejection to impact the Earth over the next 48
>hours which should prolong the coronal hole disturbance we are currently
>witnessing.
>There is also a slight chance the additional impetus from this disturbance
>might elevate levels of auroral activity a bit more after it arrives.
>
> NOTE: High latitude stations are now experiencing adverse seasonal
> twilight conditions. Regular reports from the higher latitude stations
> will therefore cease until later this fall.
