Over past 24 hours, M and X Class associated with Earth directed CME; just a heads up, I believe aurora Borealis could be strong and visible at lower latitude over next 2-3 days.

Auroras at lower latitudes likely won't be happening. The flares were mostly impulsive and very minor CME's were released. Higher latitude watchers will likely get several days of decent light shows though.

I am interested, though, on what 1882 will do once it rotates around towards us. It's put out two X flares in the last day and isn't showing any signs of decay so far. Hopefully the CME's have a bit more meat to them.

Unfortunately by the time 1882 comes in straight on the Midwest will be socked in with clouds and rain.......all week:( hopefully we get a glancing blow from today's x flare.

Could have clear skies here in Yellowknife tomorrow night so it would be nice to see a good display. ;)
