Aurora Alert NOW! 23 December

Kp has hit 6 and the IPS has issued an aurora alert. However Bz remains positive but there have been reports of unaided eye aurora from Tasmanian and some NZ observers.

Worth having a look.

As always look to the south for shifting red/green glows, recently beams have been reported too. As usual, dark sky sites will have the best chance of seeing anything, and always allow around 5 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted.

The all sky aurora camera in Southern Tasmania at Cressy may be of help in monitoring for aurora http://www.ips.gov.au/Geophysical/4/2 

SUBJ: IPS AURORA ALERT HIGH LATITUDES ISSUED AT 1220 UT ON 23 Dec 2014 BY IPS RADIO AND SPACE SERVICES FROM THE AUSTRALIAN SPACE FORECAST CENTRE Follow the progress of this event on the IPS web site by following the links to the Space Weather Status Panel, Home > Space Weather
