AURORA ALERT!

Postby zlosin » Wed Sep 14, 2005 9:23 pm

I know there's some aurora watchers in the forum so no doubt you'd be interested to know that there's probably going to be a major geomagnetic storm sparked off sometime tonight, meaning possible bright auroras.

More details here:

Here is a site that might tell you if conditions are right for you to see it.

I have a clear sky tonight, Hope I get to see it.

Can you post pictures, PSIP? Chances are better'n average that I'll have fog, mist, and overcast skies. If this was a clear dry day, I'd still be too far south. :(

I remember taking a vacaction to Alaska in 1995. Our tour pulled into Fairbanks, which is pretty far north, and having someone tell us that there had been a spectacular aurora the night before, and he expected something similar that night.

I got up every hour to look, including getting dressed and walking the two or three blocks it took to get beyond the street lights. Lots of stars, but no aurora whatsoever.

I've looked for them so many times, and failed, that I'm beginning to classify them with snipes.

I dunno. Never seen an aurora. But there were a dozen snipes in the alley this morning when I got to work. :roll:
