Auroras out at 9, but low, now 950pm and higher

Auroras can be seen in the Fairbanks area! Kp 1.

Last night the aurora came out dancing and put on a nice show before midnight. Alerts went out and I managed to get it on Facebook but was barely able to get a signal for updating the website. Here are a few photos I took last night at Cleary Summit.

early morning CME hit, on time for sunrise in Fairbanks.

The aurora came out last night in Fairbanks, but was not as a result of the CME. The CME hit a couple hours later, right before sunrise. Europe is seeing a show now, and in Alaska, we await darkness. We should be able to see auroras tonight. NOAA Spaceweather is calling this a G1 storm, so the whole state may or may not see a show. We shall see! We are on aurora watch come nightfall.

UPDATED: NOAA Spaceweather changed it to a G2 storm.

auroras again tonight!

The aurora can be seen in the Fairbanks area again tonight! It is 1130pm. The Kp level is 0.


Last night I was unable to post here. The aurora came out early in Fairbanks areas, but was mostly faint until about 11-12, when they brightened. About 1am, they started to dance in a big display. The Kp level was 1 and rose to 4.
