Are you up north?
If so, better take a look outside...

11:20 PM EDT 8/5/2011 As reported by the NOAA/NWS Space Weather Center, and numerous other solar research facilities around the world, a powerful geomagnetic storm has been impacting Earth's upper atmosphere for several hours. This link to the University of Alaska's Geophysical Institute provides the details on where you may be able to experience tonight's Aurora Borealis light show, courtesy of an over-energetic sun. Snap a photo and post it on our U.S. facebook page:

Many thanks to Advisor Forrest Palmer in West Virginia and Lead Forecaster Mark Ingalls in Washington for being on top of this space weather situation. Forecaster Mark has the latest update in our Pacific Northwest page
