Northern lights seen in Europe now. Kp 7, maybe higher

The auroras from last night in Alaska are continuing in Europe. The Kp level is 7 and the Wing Kp predicts possible Kp 9. If this storm continues for many more hours, then Alaska will see a great show tonight! Even if it wanes a bit, we will see auroras. If it remains strong, then the upper contiguous USA may see auroras.

Look north if not overhead! East coast, look north, northwest. Midwest look north! West coast look north, northeast! Alaska, first look up, then north, then any direction if you cannot easily see it. What you are doing is facing the aurora oval as seen on the Ovation plot.

I will update again later today. Be ready for tonight either way. Charge the camera and set up the tripod. Find your hat and gloves. Last night in North Pole, Alaska, it got icy even though it wasn’t snowing or raining. The ABN Aurora Cam iced up in 5 minutes time, and I had to get up there and use the hair dryer on it. The sky was exploding in pinks and greens. Amazing night!!!
