Active auroras forecast for the next 3 nights

The aurora forecast from NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center predicts auroras for the next 3 nights for northern locations such as interior Alaska and Canada. There is a smaller chance for auroras in areas more south, such as Anchorage.

Last night (Saturday night/Sunday morning), we did not see the forecasted auroras because the bz was not southward. For more scientific information on the interplanetary magnetic field see
