Valentine’s Night aurora on order, Kp 5 expected.

Heads up across the aurora zone!
There has been a solar flare today resulting in an earth directed CME. This means we can expect auroras on Feb 14/15 at a Kp level of 5. All of Alaska, all of Canada, and the upper portion of the contiguous USA be on alert for auroras as soon as night falls and all night long until the sun rises.

Perfect for Valentine’s Day. This is a hint, ladies and gentlemen.
