The title above was copied from the website; sorry if it is not correct scientific terminology.

CME IS COMING

Geromagnetic Storm Watch Issued

Strong Solar Flare and CME

They are saying parts of the Northeastern US could see the Aurora. This website links to "Aurora Forecast"

With the size, duration, and direction of this CME I was expecting to see a lot more online and in the news about it, but can't find much more than what I included. Anyone think this could be more serious than just increased aurora activity?

Interesting, we should track and keep an open eye out for it.

I've never seen an Aurora, even though I've been to Alaska.

Only thing I've seen tonight was the best shooting star I've ever seen.

OK, it is a G3... strong but not severe or extreme...

www.spaceweather.com...



NOAA forecasters say there is a 75% chance of geomagnetic storms on July 16th when a CME is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. Moderately strong G2-class storms on July 16th could intensify to strong G3-class storms on July 17th as Earth passes through the CME's magnetized wake. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras in the nights ahead. Free: Aurora Alerts

I saw them quite often when I lived in Michigan. Very mysterious and beautiful. An Aurora Borealis would have to be extra bright for it to show up here in the vicinity of Chicago.

The SOHO/LASCO site SL is oddly absent for any info about it, however they are time late a lot due to processing. Seems NOAA is the focus point. It is real, despite a lot of twitter traffic.

Just got notice about 2 hour ago that we may see it as far south as Pittsburgh PA. Not holding my breath, last i saw one here was 2001.

As luck would have it however i just got a new camera. Directions on it are To Long and Did Read though I burst a blood vessel or 2000.



Hope it pans out.. and also unplug all devices just incase of solar emp.😄

Wow, now that page is perhaps one of the best data dumps I have ever seen on CME tracking.
So much consolidated into one place. Very nice! Thanks.

It seems like a lot of people are seeing really nice auroras over the past four years or so. I haven't seen any colorful ones yet. I guess I have to go by Lake Superior if I want to see a real line one. I see the plain old white ones occasionally but not the beautiful ones.

Reading the comments, I forgot how lucky being a northerner is.
I see the lights every week or so on my morning drive to the mine site.
Sort of take it for granted that the sky will be swirling with greens, reds and purples.

Although I have seen the AB in Boston, as a kid, it was nothing like when I went up to Prince Edward Island, CA about 10 years ago. Never seen anything like that... waves of colors with intense curtains that danced with incredible speed. You would look straight up and see the solar wind racing across the sky. That was quite a big event, and while I was up there, people back here in Boston, again were able to see the fringe of it.

MEH.

I live in Alaska. Seen the aurora once or twice... a year for decades. Nothing new there.

Now if the flare was X class then it would be something. G class... yawn.

Enjoy the light show!!!

I won't see this one either, lol...

For viewing:

Coronal mass ejection last night could result in an Aurora well into the northern states Sunday night/Monday morning
NWS
SWPC shows a map-between the green and the yellow lines across the northern US you are most likely to see it. May be able to see an even dimmer version below the lines.
•Outside of the city helps, of course, less light pollution.
•I found for the Pac NW so far (check your local area)

Peak viewing time will be from around midnight to 3 a.m., but aurora can potentially be seen through most of the overnight hours.
Source
•Also, of course, you want to be looking north for viewing.
