Aurora Happening NOW (8:22 pm 17 March)

 K-Index plot diagramSignificant unaided eye aurora have been reported in New Zealand and Goulburn NSW (!!!!!). A large part of Southern Australia is currently under cloud, however, the Kp index is currently 6 (very good for aurora), if this lasts, SA and WA have a chance of seeing aurora. Dark sky sites have the best chance of seeing aurora, and always allow around 5 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted. As always look to the south for shifting red/green glows. The aurora may come and go as the night goes on, so keep looking.

The all sky aurora camera in Tasmania at Cressy is playing up, the green is not aurora,
