      Space Science News for March 2, 2000

      The Sun appears to be in an unsettled state. Minor short-lived sunspot
      groups are appearing at various locations on the Sun's disk and small
      flares are erupting in many of the active regions. This morning two
      intense solar flares erupted from sunspot group #8882. Impressive coronal
      mass ejections followed both flares. Geomagnetic activity could begin in 24
      to 48 hours. FULL STORY with updates at

      aurora captured by the Ultraviolet Imager on NASA's Polar satellite.
