We are also experiencing waning CME effects combined with the effects of a coronal hole high speed stream. Aurorae were seen from many high latitude locations. Our header image was taken in Iceland by Michał Rogoś Photography. Stunning work! Unfortunately, the direction of the IMF is pointing northward right now and geomagnetic conditions are back to quiet conditions.
