Auroras again tonight, Feb 17/18

The Kp level is 6. Data is looking great for more auroras tonight in the entire state of Alaska, all of Canada, and the upper portion of the contiguous USA. The lowest Kp forecast for tonight overnight is Kp 3. The higher the Kp level (along with other data) means that the aurora can be seen further south. So a 3 is still great for Alaskans, but a 6 may be seen into the northern states. Remember, auroras come and go during the night, so if they appear faint, you wait (sometimes a long time). The best time tonight to catch the lights are when it is dark. Auroras may be seen until the sun rises. If you can’t stay up late, get up early! Data fluctuates. It may or may not be seen at any given time. The best views and photos come from those who are patient enough to wait (or just get lucky!)
