Update for tonight: nothing yet

Update to tonight’s aurora: The bz winds are extremely north right now. We need them to be south to see the aurora. There are some good signs, but it is not coming together right now. It is only 940pm, the night is young. Things could change at any time.

2am update: winds still to the north. This CME has really disappointed us all!

MORE aurora tonight

GET READY FOR ROUND 2 TONIGHT!!! Charge those camera batteries, get a nap in, make your plans! Tonight there will be ANOTHER GREAT aurora borealis!

Estimated Kp between 4 and 6. Aurora predicted approximately 60degrees latitude and northward. We will know more later tonight.
