Daily Aurora Forecast

17th March

Tonight’s estimated aurora level:


Level 6 – G2 Moderate Geomagnetic Storm

Forecast:
Auroral activity should be at G2 Storm levels!! Weather permitting, aurora displays may be visible overhead or on the horizon in Skagen (Denmark), Göteborg (Sweden) and Aberdeen (Scotland).

Comments:
We are feeling the effects from a very strong CME which impacted Earth this morning. As you can see on the gauges below, the data hasn’t looked this great in a long time. So levels reaching or possibly exceeding Kp6 are expected tonight. Good luck!

12th March

Tonight’s estimated aurora level:


Level 4 – High

Forecast:
Auroral activity should be at high levels. Weather permitting, aurora displays may be visible overhead or on the horizon in Trondheim (Norway), Vaasa (Finland), Sundsvall (Sweden) and Faeroe Islands.

Comments:
We are expecting glancing blows from multiple CME’s which are expected to arrive within the next 6-12 hours. If the CME analysis is accurate (and experience tells us it often isn’t), we could see levels up to kp5 late healthsavy.com tonight or in the early hours of the morning. But as always, keep an open mind, glancing blows are always a lottery whether they will give us anything worthwhile, or indeed glance right past us. If you have good clear skies and typically need kp4-kp5 levels, then it might be worth a look to the north tonight in case these CME’s surprise us. Good luck.
