Curious if anyobe is seeing auroras. If so, and you feel like telling us, what is your position and latitude?
Still twilight here in the pacific northwest. But clear.
You absolutely would see them!
Best display I ever saw was in western Ontario near Dryden?
I swear you could hear them, making a sizzling/crackling sound.
Heavy, heavy reds and greens. Great sheets of them flowing across the sky. it was beautiful.
The skeeters were killers, though!
I’ve never had any pleasure to see other colours than green, but one time they were bright enough that I could read a newspaper by them.
Another time, the ends of the aurora connected to form a complete circle. As circular as ever changing Aurora lights can get anyway. :)
I go to a website called Aurora Watch to see when they might be strong enough to take a trip outside the cite.
That must’ve been before she froze on the trolley.
(The sky’s very bright to the north here at around 46°N in Wisc., but I can’t see through the trees whether there’s any movement or not.)
...........I used to date Aurora Schmeltzer ...............
I hope that she was able to light up your life in the back seat of your Nash Rambler..
(That’s the car my first wife had pre-marriage. Should have realized then that she was a total loser!!)
In mid-Minnesota, seeing some great ones!
I idn’t see any auroras here. I’m just south of Tacoma an there’s too much skyglow from the Seattle-Tacoma area.
HOWEVER...within 10 seconds of looking skyward, I DID see a shooting star! Good enough for me.

I should be able to see them here in WV, but there is some kind of curse that every time a celestial event occurs, it clouds over.
Of course we do rival the Pacific NW as the cloudiest area in the US. I love it here, but it’s not the best place to be an amateur astronomer.
Only after eating a Taco Bell meat burrito.
