      Space Weather News for March 31, 2002

      COMET CONJUNCTION: Got dark skies? Can you see the western horizon? If
      you answered "yes" to both these questions, then you could be in for a
      treat just after sunset on April 4th. As the sky fades to black, Comet
      Ikeya-Zhang and the great Andromeda Galaxy will meet about 10 degrees
      above the western horizon. The pair will be dimly visible to the unaided
      eye -- even so, binoculars are recommended. Visit spaceweather.com for
      finder charts and other details...

      AURORA WATCH: Meanwhile, our planet has entered a high speed solar wind
      stream flowing from a coronal hole on the Sun; solar wind gusts could
      trigger auroras. For as long as Earth remains inside the stream,
      high-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for Northern Lights.
