      Space Weather News for May 6, 2000

      The wide field coronagraph on board the orbiting Solar and Heliospheric
      Observatory recorded a series of dazzling coronal mass ejections (CMEs) on
      May 5, 2000, with Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn in the background. These
      eruptions apparently came from active sunspot groups that are just over the
      Sun's western limb. CMEs like these, seen in profile, are unusually
      beautiful.

      This weekend the visible disk of the Sun is remarkably devoid of large
      sunspots as we approach the peak of the sunspot cycle in mid-2000.
