This is still on my list of "things to do before you die".

I really want to see aurora with my own eyeball mk 1.

We're approaching the equinox time of year and there are loads to be seen if your in the right place. Good aurora last night (14/09/10) and a cool pic of it.



Here's the satellite environment site. The yellow on the bottom KP scale means good aurora. This site is 3 days live so if you click on it after 17/09/10 you wont see what I mean.

Some major aurora going on as I type (13/11/10). This one is also from Space Weather and shows a beam of light from the John Lennon memorial over Reykjavik, Iceland (11/11/10).

Here is a space weather gallery of aurora for 2011.

I really want to see this for real. Only problem is I don't like the cold. Doh!

Scientists around the world will be watching closely as three eruptions from the Sun reach the Earth over Thursday and Friday.
