Recommended Posts

Just seen this and thought it was interesting....

AURORA WATCH: A series of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) en route to Earth from sunspot 1158 will buffet our planet's magnetic field during the next 24-48 hours. NOAA forecasters estimate a 45% chance of geomagnetic activity on Feb. 17th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for Auroras

Cloudy here in Durham now as it has been all day .


I've never seen Aurora...

Aside - Did note the crater 'Plato' on the moon the night before last but that was through cloud also. Sort of get the scope out and point it at something.

I wonder how Radio astronomy might work on detecting very loud solar flares?
