Auroras predicted tonight Kp 5

Auroras are predicted tonight and also tomorrow night, with a forecast of Kp 5. These auroras are the result of an incoming CME. The CME is predicted to be a slow glancing blow. The Kp 5 prediction could mean that the storm could reach as far south as the northern USA, Scotland, Ireland, Iceland, and also to the north New Zealand south island, and Tasmania. As usual with forecasts, timing could be off by several hours, so eyes to the skies when it is dark. Here is a link to the official forecast and watch or warning.

Snow, rain, and overcast skies will block the view of the aurora. Travel to where the skies are clearer. Follow the aurora hunt tonight in our facebook group with up to date predictions.
