> Auroral activity was mostly quiet over the last 24 hours.
>Activity is expected to intensify following the anticipated arrival of
>a suspected fast moving solar coronal mass ejection observed on 27 May.
>The arrival of this disturbance is expected to intensify levels of auroral
>activity over the high latitude regions, with a fair chance for
>intensifications sufficient to produce periods of visible activity from
>many dark-sky middle latitude regions as well. At the time of this
>writing, the disturbance had not yet arrived. We expect it anytime within
>the next 6 to 12 hours. The near-full phase of the moon will hamper
>attempts to view activity after moonrise.
>Activity should then return to mostly quiet levels by 31 May, barring
>further solar disturbances.
>
> 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.
