Look for the Northern Lights

     Folks as far south as Colorado saw the northern lights dancing in the sky last night. Wish I would have been out to see them but the good news is they might be out the next couple of nights. 

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: Skies over North America turned green for St. Patrick’s Day.  A CME impact during the early hours of March 17th sparked auroras in the United States at least as far south as Colorado.  More auroras are possible tonight, mainly over the Arctic, as Earth’s magnetic field continues to reverberate from the impact.  Check http://spaceweather.com for photos and updates.

Auroral activity is very high right now due to a solar event on March 
15, 2013.  Activity should be high for a day or two.
