Auroral Alert

For our Northern members:
Quote:
A significant event located on the Sun facing Earth took place on July 12. The effects of this event will begin to reach Earth early on the 14th of July GMT.
Observers in North America should watch for aurora on the nights of the 14th and 15th local time. Depending on the configuration of the disturbance, auroras may be visible as far south as the middle tier of states.
Activity may remain high also on the 16th. Auroras should be visible Southern New Zealand, Tasmania, and of course, Antarctica

For our members in NZ, and possibly AUS: Aurora Forecast Map | Geophysical Institute


According to a forecast track prepared by analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, the CME will hit Earth on July 14th around 10:20 UT (+/- 7 hours) and could spark strong geomagnetic storms.

Event is only expected to be a Class 5, I need a Class 7 for a good show , but there is still hope!

EDIT:
I didn't forget our European members, but It was difficult to find a site that shows a forecast, this is a visual forecast from Norwegian public TV, and is not always up to date: TV 2 Vær

If any European member has better links, I would be glad to hear from you.
