On January 14, 2005, there was a small solar flare that was located on the  
solar central meridian.  The associated plasma that was ejected, directed  
squarely toward Earth, will arrive simultaneously with an already elevated  
solar wind stream.  It is expected that the geomagnetic activity will  
become highly active, to perhaps major storm levels.  This will trigger  
Aurora at least in the high latitudes, but possibly along the middle  
latitudes, starting during the night of January 15 through January 16.

Updates if necessary will follow.
