Aurora watch issued January 15-16
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

should favourable space weather activity eventuate.
