Geomagnetic storm in progress -- watch for aurora!

They announced this last night and said it should continue for a couple of days. Good luck -- I wish I were there!

Plus it's the dark of the moon, which makes it easier to see the aurora.

Heard from friends out in the wild that the aurora was relatively active over the past weekend, but in the area I was at, the cloud cover effectively blocked it. 😞

Last night we decided it's time to do a vaca in a month where we can see the aurora in Alaska, Iceland or Norway. If things had gone as planned this year we would have been in Fairbanks in September and would have at least had a chance to see them.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be

Clearing and cooling as we type...maybe clear enough tonight to catch a view.

Well, we're going to live around Los Anchorage and a good part of SC Alaska....the beneficent fog and low lying clouds kept the evil geostorm death rays from reaching the atmosphere.

...and blocked available aurora as well. 😞

Not happening as they originally thought. Seems they may have been mistaken:

I am within the viewing zone, but the massive Calgary city lights glow drown out the night sky unless I drive 50 miles out into the boonies somewhere.

Thanks for sharing.
