Auroras predicted in a few days!! A quick layman’s interpretation of the numbers: When there is no auroral activity, the numbers say 01/01/01, so these higher numbers are exciting. The aurora should be visible in all of Alaska, most of Canada, and some parts of the upper US. Middle latitudes mean lower Canada and the upper US, and high latitudes mean upper Canada and Alaska.

Via : A Geomagnetic Storm watch has officially been issued by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC). Minor Geomagnetic Storming in response to at least one incoming Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) will be possible on November 12 and 13.
