Aurora watch issued January 15-16

The Australian IPS has issued a Aurora watch alert for the next 48 hours due to a coronal mass ejection.

As always look to the south for shifting red/green glows, in yesterdays event curtains and beams were reported. 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

SUBJ: IPS AURORA WATCH
ISSUED AT 2333 UT ON 13 Jan 2015 BY IPS RADIO AND SPACE SERVICES
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN SPACE FORECAST CENTRE

A Coronal Mass Ejection is expected to give the Earth a glancing blow
within the next 24 - 48 hours, possibly resulting in moderate space
weather activity with a small chance of visible auroras during local
nighttime hours (Tasmania, 15-16 Jan). Aurora alerts will follow
should favourable space weather activity eventuate.
