Tonight’s forecast, Kp 4

The aurora storm that hit has subsided a bit. Conditions are still great for auroras in the north, such as middle to northern Canada, and all of Alaska. Kp 4 is forecast for tonight. Currently as of this post at 715pm, the Kp level is 3. If it should rise to around Kp 5, the the upper portions of the 48 states may see the northern lights.

Many media sources were reporting that tonight is the night to catch the lights, biggest storm in a long time. That was last night. The storm did not pan out as forecast, but it was still great to see it in many states and of course, up north.

Sunflowers shine in the moonlight, with the aurora dancing above.
Cars go in and out of Chena Lakes Recreation area, a great spot to catch the aurora.
The ABN aurora cam catches even the faint lights above North Pole, Alaska.
