Aurora potential tonight

While TPE (yet) does not not predict auroras or have geodetics for them, folks who use it will probably be interested in the potential for a significant magnetic storm tonight. There was a CME on Saturday, which was predicted to arrive here on Monday. But it apparently arrived at 1430 or so UT today and caused a severe, G4 magnetic storm. It has subsided now but I see forecasts indicating the the Kp could rise to 7 between 11 and 1:000 a.m. Eastern time. That would make it possibly visible down to the mid latitudes of the US.



Wow!! That would be great

No aurora for us. No penumbral lunar eclipse either!
