Can see what either looks to be a burst off to the left on the back side southern hemisphere - or it's more towards the facing.

Risk of destabilizing 2773 if so

AN OUTBURST OF PINK AURORAS: Auroras are usually green. Not last night, though. "They were the pinkest of all pinks!" reports tour guide Markus Varik, who sends this picture from Tromsø, Norway: "The display was simply phenomenal," says Varik. "There were vibrant greens, purples, and yellows--but pink stole the show."

A moderate geomagnetic storm is in progress.
High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

Yeah that looks like it was on the far side too even. Could kind of see the ribbon beginning to reach on the other side, atop the horizon of the sun, on the Suvi 171 image loop. 2773 is still active and that second one below it is probably going to get a number within the next 24 hours.
