Aurora Alert NOW (11 April)

An aurora alert has been issued by the Australian IPS for high latitudes, some reports of green glows from Tasmania, and a report of aurora from Dunedin NZ

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 waning Moon will interfere quite a bit after it rises around 10:00 pm.

The all sky aurora camera in Southern Tasmania at Cressy may be helpful, but has been on the blink lately,
