12 DAYS to get your name in.

Kp 3 tonight, but cloudy in AK.

Clouds and snow are coming tonight to Alaska, so get some rest for the next aurora event.
Tonight’s forecast is Kp 3, and tomorrow night we might see Kp 4. This means if it is clear where you are in the mid to high latitudes, check for the green glow.

Incoming auroras predicted due to CHHSS Kp 5 G1

Tonight’s aurora forecast is looking excellent…Kp 5 predicted upon the arrival of the CHHSS.

“A G1 Geomagnetic Storm Watch is in effect for 07 November through 09 November, 2017 due to anticipated coronal hole effects. A better likelihood of visible aurora exists at high latitudes in the night sector while higher wind speeds persist.” from NOAA

**What in the world does this mean????** It means be ready for auroras tonight if you are in the area of Kp 5 (see map). All of Alaska and Canada, and the very upper portion of the contiguous USA. Also, be ready tomorrow night!!! When it is dark, look for updates here, on facebook ABN page, twitter, or report your sighting!!!

We have snow in North Pole, Alaska!!! Lots of snow this past week and more in the forecast. The trails are ready to ride! Book your snow mobile adventure with Rod’s Alaskan Guide Service

So cloudy lately, minimal activity

It has been so cloudy lately in Alaska, and even areas of clear sky (south central Alaska) have barely seen aurora lately. It has been quiet. When you are outside, and it is clear, look to the north to see if you see the green glow. Tonight’s forecast is Kp 3, however, data is looking poor as of 330pm Alaska time. Mid to northern Canada and interior Alaska may see aurora tonight if the weather is clear. Stay safe, road reports in Alaska are saying it is very icy.

Heads up for auroras tonight, but it is cloudy!

Tonight is looking great for aurora activity, but it is very cloudy in much of Alaska, and many other locations further south.
If it is clear, heads up for auroras tonight!
The forecast is Kp 6 and currently at 5pm Alaska time the Kp level is 4.
Iceland and Norway are currently seeing lights.


Prepare for the brutally cold temps coming soon.
Protect your camera while chasing the aurora!
