May-June 2004

Summary: All of the auroras reported during May and June 2004 were sparked by solar wind streams flowing from coronal holes on the Sun. June is typically a poor month for auroras, because geomagnetic storms are suppressed around the solstices. And, indeed, only one of the images below was taken in June. See also the April 2004 aurora gallery.
