very unsettled magnetic conditions at the moment. Have a look at . . .

www.dcs.lancs.ac.uk/iono/aurorawatch/

. . . this could be the latest CME on its way.

Chek out the CalSky Space weather page. It shows the info accurately as I have proved it early this morning when there was a bit of aurora activity around 6am. And sure enough, CalSky data showed that there was more activity at this time.

The link is on my weather website or you can go direct each time...

hi Mark,

thanks for those links . . . I think the aurora activity may not reach the levels of last Sunday night (according to spaceweather.com). Still, might be worth checking after dark.

conditions are still very unsettled in the magnetic field of the Earth at the moment and another CME is expected to impact us some time tonight (more than likely the early hours of tomorrow morning).

refer back to previous post by me of Sun-Earth monitoring web sites useful for estimating auroral activity.

Conditions last night, Tuesday night, were those of Sunday night if not more though I was clouded out. EAAS members from Maghera had better success...

Current gepmagnetic activity is at 7/9 but has been up at storm 9/9 during this morning. (ClaSky info)

What are we looking for in the 'Magnetic field component' BZ scale?

The more negative the better, correct? - So something like BZ -30 (south), for example, is good.... - It's hovering around the zero at the moment.
