Northern Lights This Weekend

SpaceWeather.com is forecasting possible northern lights starting Feb. 4.  Now if the weather will just cooperate.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A solar wind stream hit Earth during the late hours of Feb. 4th, sparking a G2-class (Kp=6) geomagnetic storm.  Sky watchers in Scandinavia, Russia, Canada, Alaska and perhaps even northern-tier US states such as Maine, Minnesota and Wisconsin, should be alert for auroras on Friday night.  The best time to look is during the hours around local midnight.

Canada also has a space weather site
