About last night

Last night, the Kp level never rose above a 5. That is why most of the states, which were forecast to see the lights, never saw them. Many people from the middle area of the country were writing me asking about the forecast. Many were disappointed. One thing for certain, if you cannot see hundreds of stars from your location, you have too much light pollution. Folks from the big city need to drive far out of the city to see northern lights. The streetlights, building, car lights, that is what light pollution is, and that is why you cannot see the aurora (if it were to dip down to your area).

Northern states saw a nice brief show on the horizon, Canada was clouded over in many areas but those that did see the lights, caught a great show. Lots of reds and purples! Several clear areas in Alaska saw the lights, poor Anchorage missed out because of the weather!

Many aurora watchers TODAY (Nov 3) are writing me asking about tonight. The show forecast was for LAST NIGHT. Tonight’s forecast is yet to be updated, however it is Kp 5 at the moment, Kp 6 predicted soon, and northern Europe is seeing a nice green show.

I will post again later today. ~Amy
