The Kp level over the past couple days has fluctuated up and down and has risen to 5 a few times. The trend is continuing. More auroras are expected tonight in the entire state of Alaska. Have a look out as soon as it gets dark and all night long, if you have clear skies. Clouds and snow are forecast in much of the state, and this will block your view of the auroras.
Canada also has a great chance at lights starting now, and a glow might be seen low on the horizon from the northern bordering states. Always start off your aurora watching by looking north and low.
Do you remember where you were on this day March 16/17, 2013? The best aurora storm ever, lasting days and nights. I did not sleep at all that night, the lights were magnificent. If you enjoy looking back on an aurora date, you can view the archives from this website since I started posting often at ABN archives. I will post again tonight, remembering the epic St Patricks day auroras of the past few years.
