Aurora Watch Tonight!
« on: May 11, 2023, 08:33:42 pm »
For anyone in the US, we are expecting a strong geomagnetic storm tonight, with auroras much further south than normal.  Keep your eyes on the skies, and maybe you'll catch something you'd normally have to travel to Alaska to see!

we are clear enough but maybe too far south.  It's been a good 30+ years since we have seen it here either because we were to far south or because the sky didn't cooperate.

No.  :sad:  Although I didn't see anything on the news this morning about how great it was, so maybe it wasn't as good as predicted.

I doubt that it will come down this far south to bee able to see it even if the sky was Chrystal clear.
