Auroras tonight Kp 6

The Kp level is currently Kp 6.
Heads up for auroras in all of Alaska, Canada, and the upper portion of the contiguous USA.

Last night we saw great auroras over Fairbanks, Nome, and the north, where the weather was clear.
Expect more tonight!

Tonight’s forecast Kp 2

Fairbanks has a chance at the lights tonight if only these clouds would move along…
The forecast of Kp 2 is not strong enough for Anchorage or further south.

Heads up for auroras tonight and next couple nights

Alaska times:

For UTC times, here is the forecast.

Be ready for auroras in all of Alaska, Canada, and the upper USA due to a coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS).
Northern Europe, possibly the UK.
Aurora australis: southern areas of New Zealand, and Tasmania, be ready for lights, look south.

Find an area with little to no light pollution, especially in the direction of north (south for Australia and NZ).
Interior Alaska and northern Canada, if it is a big event, look all around, not just north.

NOTE: Due to another X flare on Sunday, the forecast can change again. Watch for updates on facebook or twitter, or thru ABN email updates.

Tonight’s forecast, Kp 4

The aurora storm that hit has subsided a bit. Conditions are still great for auroras in the north, such as middle to northern Canada, and all of Alaska. Kp 4 is forecast for tonight. Currently as of this post at 715pm, the Kp level is 3. If it should rise to around Kp 5, the the upper portions of the 48 states may see the northern lights.

Many media sources were reporting that tonight is the night to catch the lights, biggest storm in a long time. That was last night. The storm did not pan out as forecast, but it was still great to see it in many states and of course, up north.

Sunflowers shine in the moonlight, with the aurora dancing above.

Cars go in and out of Chena Lakes Recreation area, a great spot to catch the aurora.

The ABN aurora cam catches even the faint lights above North Pole, Alaska.
