Images from the Aurora of March 12 (and another incoming CME March 15)

Marcus Pallinger sent me this beautiful auroral image from Point Addis (about half way between Torquay and Anglesea) in Victoria from the March 12 auroral event.

Here's some links to more images from the March 12 auroral event (remember copyright vests with the owners, please play nice).

There was an M8 Flare on the 14th, the coronal mass ejection form this flare is expected to hit earth at at 06:20 UT (+/- 7 hours), that's between 10:20 (15th) and 0:20 (16th) AEDST. The IPS http://www.ips.gov.au/Space_Weather doesn't have a storm warning out though.
