C class solar flare

The aurora forecast for tonight is quiet with active periods. This means that we will see the aurora tonight, and at times the show will be spectacular. This is due to a C class solar flare.

Expect displays between approx midnight to 4am.

The kp level is expected to fluctuate between a 2 and a 5. This means that the entire state of Alaska could potentially see the aurora. As with any space weather/aurora prediction this could be wrong, but let’s hope they are right!
