Aurora Watch, Aug.27-28
Source - Space Weather News for Aug. 27, 2015: http://spaceweather.com
Earth's polar magnetic field is storming as our planet passes through a region of south-pointing magnetism in the solar wind. Last night (Aug. 26-27), observers around the Arctic Circle saw some of their first auroras in months and Northern Lights descended across the Canadian border into multiple US states. Solar wind conditions favor more geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras on Aug. 27-28. Check http://spaceweather.com for more information and updates.
AURORA ALERTS: Don't sleep through the auroras. Get a phone call when geomagnetic storms are underway. Space weather alerts are available from http://spaceweathertext.com (text) and http://spaceweatherphone.com (voice).
