Sky Guy Viewing ALERT Night of 3/17-18/15 - Aurora May Be Visible

Hey Space Placers!

The Earth was hit by a major solar storm today  that has made Aurora, the glowing Northern Lights, visible in many Northern Hemisphere locations including Europe, the U.S. and the International Space Station (ISS).

Check here to see if the Aurora will be visible tonight from your location.

Take your camera out and try to get some time exposures from a tripod. I last saw Aurora in VA (and photographed them) in 2003.

Let me know if you see any.
