Aurora happening NOW! 22 January 2015 1:00 am

The solar wind flowing from a coronal hole has produced an unexpected aurora. Aurora are being seen with the unaided eye in Tasmania NOW!  Naked eye beams are being reported in Howden, Tinderbox, Evandale and Hobart. The auroral intensity may fade in and out, so be prepared for lulls in the activity. Solar wind Velocity: 401 km/sec Bz: -5.0 nT

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

The all sky aurora camera in Southern Tasmania at Cressy may be of help in monitoring for aurora
