Interplanetary Shock Event
What we do know is the event is being listed officially listed as a Interplanetary Shock ~ 28 May 2009 (DOY 148 0421 UT) zone 4 ~ Type ~ Foward with a Confidence Level of 99%,
Detection at the actual recorded time was also made by Goes 11 & 12 . In this video is an animation , I have also included a still image showing the time stamp 04:19 UT , This would have been just prior to the officially noted Shock Time
Stereo B seemed to detect this event while Stereo A did Not
Detection in L5 & L1 , But NOT in L4
The CCMC Magnetosphere animation in this video is 375 frames set at .15
This observation period is at 30 hours
Starts 5-27-2009 @ 19:59

Mostly thought to originate Either From a Coronal Mass Ejection or Magnetic Clouds this does not appear to have been the case in this particular event
A little thought on the process of an Interplanetary Shocks ,A 6-year period from Jan 21, 1996 to March 31, 2002 shows that in Zone 4 during the last Solar Maximum which was also known as a double-peaked cycle there was approximately 67 events recorded just in the period from 1996 to 2002 , Solar Cycle 23 after a long 13 year run still produced a spot into the 5th month of 2009 along the Solar equator. Solar Cycle 23, peaked in 2000-2002 but some of the most powerful events occurred well after the Maximum.It is important to note that cycles have been as short as 9 years and have been as long as 14 years , So with this said we may have not seen the last of Solar Cycle 23 just yet . But there seems to be somewhat of an alarming trend here , This is the fact that most of any Solar Cycle 24 spots have rapidly dissipated , And we have now a rather Large Coronal Hole pretty much dissipate overnight , It is important to note a measurable amount Magnetic Activity recorded in several Magnetometers that are Earth Bound During this event

So, from the looks of it, seems to be just another solar flare and just another shock wave.
