Waiting for Aurora

Image, the CME launched by the X class flare back on the 14th that we are waiting for. The bright dot is Mercury. Image credit SOHO.
[8:50 ACST]The CME has hit the ACE spacecraft, and it should hit us soon. The background Kp levels have risen from 2 to 5, so we wait anxiously for the storm. In the mantime visit this aurora web cam. Aurora are happening in Alaska right now. There is this Alaskan Aurora Webcam as well, but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment.

Oh yes, and 798/808 just let off another X class flare. The LASCO cameras on SOHO seem to be playing up, so no images of this one.
