Aurora Happening Now (3 November, 10:30 AEDST)
Sadly, the weather over most of Southern Australia is rubbish at the moment. (the lightning has one away here, but it is still raining)
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 consistently over the last few aurora and a large green "blob" has been seen.
Here is the near-real time satellite view of the clouds http://satview.bom.gov.au/
Cloud cover predictions can be found at SkippySky.
The all sky aurora camera in Northern Tasmania at Cressy may be helpful.
