Heads up if you live in the northern states or Canada where it gets dark at night. NOAA Space Weather is predicting G2 storm conditions on the arrival of the coronal mass ejection sometime Sunday morning. Kp 6 predicted. We will likely see auroras Sunday night. If you live in the middle states, you have a small chance. Just be ready to view!
Alaska will only see auroras where it gets dark at night. If you are on a cruise ship, or down in southeast Alaska, you do have a chance at seeing the lights! Be awake and ready late at night. Watch on facebook for live reporting to see if the lights can be seen in your area. We are also on Twitter @AuroraNotify.
- Get away from light pollution. If you cannot see a multitude of stars, you have too much light pollution.
- Get away from dust. Dusty industrial areas such as open fields and farms may put dust into the air, making your photos look blurry.
- Face north. If you cannot see the aurora straight up into the sky, look north. Look as low as the horizon.
- Have a clear view of the northern horizon.
- Adjust your eyes. If you are playing on your phone and look up to see the lights, you have to let your eyes adjust to the dark sky.
