Coronal Mass Ejection to hit Tonight (March 8), Possibility of Mid latitude Aurora
There is a good possibility of mid latitude auroras, in the past they have even reached northern New South Wales. But as always, there is equally the possibility that the event will be a squib from the Southern Hemisphere. The Full Moon's light will not help either.
Look to the South, and as always, dark sky sites away from the suburbs will have the best views, should aurora come to pass.
