Kp 3 at 330am, Alaska has great lights, but weaker than anticipated

20150318_planetary-k-index The Kp index was high!

Super lights still going on in Alaska at 330am. Several sporadic shows were seen since the sun went down. Activity still looks great, but not the show we anticipated. That’s ok, at least other parts of the USA and Canada saw the show after a great display in Europe. I read that even Germany saw the lights! Amazing!

I really hope you saw the lights. The forecast looks great again for northern Europe as their sun goes down and again for Alaska tonight.

Photos from tonight, taken around North Pole, Moose Creek, Salcha, and the Harding Lake area, Alaska. It was not cold at all, and it was nice to get out under a moonless night.
