Details:            "This was the best looking Aurora event in five years for central Minnesota even if the wind chill was -25F. We had to wait
until after dark and after some clouds to move out. Just after 10:30 the faint glow on the horizon came alive for about a half hour. "

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A G1-class geomagnetic storm is in progress, sparked by a high-speed solar wind stream which is buffeting Earth's magnetic field. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.
Shawn Malone sends this picture, taken before sunrise on April 12th, from Marquette, Michigan:
"I coaxed myself out of bed around 4am and was rewarded by a lightshow!" says Malone. "The auroras had no problem shining through the light pollution. I think the sun IS waking up. I watched the Northern Lights until the sunlight wiped them out."   [Wonderful photos this page, Yowbarb]

AURORAS OVER THE USA: The geomagnetic storm of Jan. 24th died out before night fell over North America--or did it? According to reports still trickling in, auroras were reported not only in Canada, but also in some of the lower 48 US states. Shawn Malone of Marquette, Michigan, took this picture looking north from the shores of Lake Superior: [ See PHOTO, bottom of this post ]
"I got to view a slice of the aurora through a tiny opening in an otherwise completely overcast sky," says Malone. "It appeared to be a pretty decent display."

Prompted by the CME warning, Mike Hollingshead of Nebraska drove 450 miles to the Badlands National Park of South Dakota hoping to catch a glimpse of the auroras. He got more than he bargained for: "While I waited for some sign of auroras, the most amazing fireball
I've ever seen blasts down. It flashed brightly and illuminated the terrain around me." Later, the auroras made a belated appearance, turning the badland sky green.

More auroras could be in the offing. A solar wind stream is heading for Earth, due to arrive on Jan. 28-29. NOAA forecasters estimate a 15% chance of geomagnetic storms at high latitudes. Aurora alerts:text, voice.

AURORAS OVER THE USA: A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field during the waning hours of Saturday, Feb. 18th. Although the stream was expected, the bright auroras it produced were not. Northern Lights spilled across the Canadian border into several US states including Wisconsin, Michigan, North Dakota, and Minnesota:

Travis Novitsky took this picture from Grand Portage, MN. [ See below ]"Last night, my girlfriend and I were just settling in to watch a movie when the auroras made a surprise appearance," he says. "A quick look out the back door of my house revealed that, yes indeed, the lights were out! We jumped in the truck and drove a few miles inland from Lake Superior. For the next hour and a half we were treated to a green glow peppered with dancing curtains of green, purple and red. It was a spectacular night."

In Fairbanks, Alaska, "the auroras were so bright they drew a crowd on my street," reports Brandon Lovett. At the Poker Flats Research Range outside of Fairbanks, researchers launched a suborbital rocket to investigate how auroras affect GPS systems. Lovett could see the rocket soaring into the heavens from more than 20 miles away.

This episode might have been amplified by the action of a co-rotating interaction region or "CIR." CIRs are transition zones between fast and slow solar wind streams. Solar wind plasma piles up in these regions, producing density gradients and shock waves that do a good job of sparking auroras. Local solar wind data suggest that Earth moved through a CIR around 1500 UT on Feb. 18th. Aurora alerts: text, voice.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM UPDATE: A CME propelled toward Earth by yesterday's X5-class solar flare is expected to
reach our planet on March 8th at 0625 UT (+/- 7 hr).
Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, who prepared the CME's forecast track, say the impact could spark a strong geomagnetic storm. Sky watchers at all latitudes should be alert for auroras. Aurora alerts: text, phone.

Mild geomagnetic activity is already underway following a lesser CME impact on March 7th.
Shortly after the cloud
arrived, a burst of Northern Lights appeared over the US-Canadian border.

Shawn Malone photographed the display from the shores of Lake Superior:
"I was lucky to catch this brilliant outburst of aurora activity that was very active for close to an
hour," says Malone, who has also made a time-lapse video of the display. "The aurora had no
problem shining through the moonlit skies."

NORTHERN LIGHTS OVER NEBRASKA:

A solar wind stream is buffeting Earth's magnetic field, causing magnetic unrest and auroras at high latitudes. Last night faint North Lights descended all the way south to Nebraska. Click to view a movie of the display, photographed by Chris Allington of Crofton, NE:
"I certainly didn't expect this tonight, but the plots were interesting enough to get me out and investigate the northern sky with the camera," says Allington. "Suprisingly, around 9:30pm local time I could see the color of the aurora on my camera so I decided to head to a wind farm near my house. The display got much more vibrant and lasted nearly 4 hours from 10pm to 2am. It's not often that auroras are hardly in the forecast and we see them as far south as NEBRASKA! "

The cause of the display was the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), which tipped south and opened a crack in Earth's magnetosphere. Solar wind poured in to fuel the light. More high-latitude auroras are possible tonight: NOAA forecasters estimate a 50% chance of polar geomagnetic storms as the solar wind continues to blow.

"A brief and unexpected timelapse display occured on March 27th, 2012. I had been watching the plots and taking occasional images outside to see if the aurora was visible. Finally around 9:15pm local time... I had the faint green/red glow on the horizon. After a few more images I decided to head for a wind farm near my house west of Crofton, Nebraska to finally capture the Northern Lights with a foreground besides the trees in my yard!

The aurora remained visible from 10pm to nearly 2am local time with brief periods of stronger activity including some colorful rays and beams. This timelapse covers the span from about 10pm to 1am before I decided to head home. All images were taken using a Canon Rebel T1i, using the kit lens at 18mm and f/3.5, 1600 iso for 30 seconds. You can see the wind mills move a couple times during the video as the stars swirl with Earth's rotation above and the curtain of aurora dances between."

GEOMAGNETIC STORM:
A CME hit Earth's magnetic field on May 18th at around 0100 UT. Although it was just a glancing blow, the impact was enough to spark a G1-class geomagnetic storm. In the United States, Northern Lights descended as far south as Pawnee Buttes, Colorado.

"The aurora was not visible to the naked eye," says photographer Robert Arn. "Only with a 30 second exposure did I know it was there. As I started to collect data, I noticed an electrical storm in the distance. The juxtaposition of the electrical storm and aurora made for a spectacular image. (The moon near the horizon illuminated the landscape.)"

Elsewhere in the United States, faint auroras were sighted or photographed in, e.g., Washington, Vermont, and Iowa. Browse the aurora gallery  for more...http://spaceweather.com/gallery/index.php?title=aurora&title2=lights

AURORAS IN THE USA:

On June 1, Northern Lights spilled across the Canadian border into more than a dozen US states, turning the sky purple and green as far south as Colorado and Nebraska. Subscribers to the Space Weather Alert System (text, voice) knew the storm was coming, but others were surprised:

"Last night, I drove to Crater Lake National Park to photograph the Milky Way rising above the rim," reports Oregon photographer Brad Goldpaint. "I was staring upward towards a clear night sky when suddenly, without much warning, the aurora borealis began erupting in front of me." (continued below)

"With adrenaline pumping, I raced to the edge of the caldera, set up a time-lapse sequence, and watched northern lights dance until sunrise," he continues. "The moon rose around 2am and blanketed the surrounding landscape with a faint glow, adding depth and texture to the shot."

The source of the display was an interplanetary shock wave, which hit Earth's magnetic field during the late hours of May 31st. Forecasters still aren't sure where the shock wave came from. Current speculation focuses on a corotating interaction region (CIR)-a shock-like transition zone between slow and fast streams of solar wind. Whatever it was, the impact ignited some beautiful auroras.

AURORAS AND METEORS: A fast stream of solar wind is buffeting Earth's magnetic field. When the stream arrived during the late hours of Dec. 7th, a G2-class geomagnetic storm broke out around the poles and Northern Lights spilled over the Canadian border into several US states. Patrick Daigle sends this photo from Cameron, Montana.

"Just before bedtime I checked Spaceweather.com. That made me change my plans," says Daigle. "Instead of going to bed, I went out into the cold (-24 F) in search of Northern Lights. While I was snapping pictures, I noticed well over a dozen shooting stars. I believe the one pictured above is an Andromedid."

NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of additional geomagnetic storms on Dec. 9th. High-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for auroras as the solar wind continues to blow.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY GEOMAGNETIC STORM: The strongest geomagnetic storm of the current solar cycle is underway now. Sky watchers in Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, Canada and all upper-tier US States should be alert for auroras after nightfall. As St. Patrick's Day came to an end in Maine, Northern Lights were visible even before the sky faded to black.

"I took this picture from Quaker Ridge, looking north toward the Presidential Range in New Hampshire," says photographer John Stetson of Casco, ME. "The auroras were clearly visible in the afterglow of sunset."

The ongoing storm was sparked by the arrival of a CME during the early hours of March 17th (04:30 UT). The impact of the cloud rattled Earth's magnetic field, and in a matter of hours a severe G4-class (Kp=8) storm was underway. Skies turned shamrock-green over many US states including Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Montana, the Dakotas and Washington.

AURORAS AND LIGHTNING: A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field during the late hours of June 7th, sparking a G2-class geomagnetic storm. In the United States, surprised sky watchers from Maine to Washington witnessed a rare display of summer auroras. Outside of Rochester, Minnesota, photographer Marcella Chester recorded the green glow alongside a June thunderstorm:
"I've never seen auroras and lightning visible side by side before," marvels Chester. "These photos were taken between 2 and 3 am on Monday, June 8th."

Spaceweather: Researchers have long known that geomagnetic storms happen most often in spring and fall. In other words, auroras prefer equinoxes. That's why seeing them so close to the summer solstice is remarkable.

The show is subsiding, but might not be finished. NOAA forecasters estimate a 50% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on June 9th as the solar wind continues to blow.

"It was an incredible night, and this is just the beginning of the season!" she says. Elsewhere in North America, auroras were sighted in Vermont, Michigan, and the Yukon Territories.

More displays are possible tonight as Earth moves further into the solar wind stream. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% to 40% chance of continued geomagnetic storms on Sept. 4-5.

VERY QUIET... Powered by fusion, the sun is a 1027-ton nuclear explosion contained in one place only by the awesome force of its own gravity. How quiet can such a thing be? Very. According to NOAA, solar activity has been very low all week long. No sunspots are flaring, and the sun's X-ray output has flatlined. The chance of a strong solar flare on Sept. 10th is no more than 1%. Solar flare alerts: text or voice

...BUT VERY PRETTY: The sun may be quiet, but that does not mean there is no space weather. On the contrary, northern skies have been filled with auroras for the past three days. Paul Nelson sends this example from Marquette, Michigan, on Sept. 9th:

AURORAS OVER THE USA: A unusual stream of solar wind is buffeting Earth's magnetic field, causing G1-class geomagnetic storms around the poles. The stream is unusual not only because it is very fast (700+ km/s), but also because it has a series of shock waves or "transients" embedded in it--at least 3 so far. Sudden changes in solar wind pressure have sparked auroras in multiple US states, like these over Ellensburg, Washington, on Nov. 3rd.

"Last night was amazing," says photographer Lia Simcox. "I hurried up to my favorite spot and was not only greeted with Northern Lights, but snow as well! What an absolutely gorgeous sight."

Elsewhere in the USA, auroras were sighted in Michigan, Wisconsin, Montana, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Ohio. In those areas, subscribers to our space weather alert service received wake-up calls when the auroras appeared.

More auroras are possible tonight as the solar wind continues to blow. NOAA forecasters estimate an 70% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on Nov. 4th, waning to 35% on Nov. 5th when Earth begins to exit the solar wind stream.
