G5+ geomagnetic storm predicted for June 20-22, 2015

A huge plasma cloud has errupted on the sun and it is now on its way to Earth. Due to the tremendous size it moves slowly and predictions are that it will reach Earth sometime around June 20-22, 2015. While the reason for this erruption is still unclear, aurora fans will have finally time to prepare and arrange travels well in time. First calculations tell, that curiously the brightest auroras can be observed during lunch time and not – as usually – during night time. Good luck to all of you!

As for you photo and real-time geeks, no problem with high ISO noise for that event 😉

  1. Nach neuesten Berechnungen geht man davon aus, dass man es besonders gut in Südniedersachsen sehen wird -selbst dicke Wolken sollen das Ereignis nicht nennenswert trüben – das nenn ich mal – ein dickes Ei – frohe Ostern – Sylvia

    • Hey Sylvia, deine Kommentar hab ich doch glatt fast vergessen. Ja, das ist ja ein Riesenglück für Südniedersachsen! Bin schon auf die Bilder gespannt 😉 Dir auch noch frohe Ostern, Thomas
