Standby for auroras tonight, if your weather is clear

The entire state of Alaska, Canada, and the upper portion of the contiguous USA be on alert for auroras tonight. The data has been excellent all day, and Europe got a good show. As of this writing, at 7:40pm Alaska time, the stars are twinkling in Fairbanks and we are standing by awaiting the show. It may not be a big show, but we should see something at some point tonight. It could be very soon, or it could be hours from now. As soon as we see it imminent or visible in the sky, we will post again. Current Kp 3.

Can’t get out for the show? Check out the local cam just a tiny bit north of Fairbanks Alaska Aurora Cam courtesy Ronn Murray Photography.
