As usual nothing but clouds here, north of Buffalo N.Y. Everytime we get a chance to see it the clouds roll in!!!

The sky has been clear for the past two days, but nothing here

Well... just make sure you are looking to the north!


Seriously though, you should be able to see SOMETHING I would think!

Well, hubby took me norther,
Sky is clear, saw something, but not enough to say I saw the lights. I read that even if you only saw the white glow on the horizon (which is what I think I saw) if you take a pic with a 30 second long exposure, you will see the lights better than your eyes can. Did see some shooting stars and one was the brightest I have ever seen so it wasn't a wasted trip. I wish I could have stayed out all night but tomorrow is putting up corn day and that means an early start. Would just hang outside but we are by the river and can't see for the trees.
Hope y'all have better luck and some great pics to share. Can't wait to see them tomorrow!

I'm at 44 north. I just went out and haven't seen anything yet. Last night it rained here. I was up at 4 and looked out, thought I could detect a faint glow through the clouds.

I just want to see them again like in the mid 90's. Those were awesome. Lately all we seem to get around here is faint only really detectable with averted vision, by that I mean like out of the corner of your eye. Or through photo's. Nothing really to wake the family up over.

Solar Cycle 24 has begun - and it has been predicted by NASA, NOAA and ESA to be up to 50% stronger than its 'record breaking' predecessor Cycle 23 which produced the largest solar flare ever recorded Thats 70%!. The Sun will reach its 'apex' (maximum) in late 2011 into 2012.Such a storm struck in 1859, knocking out telegraph communications and causing those lines to erupt in flames.That was only 20 percent. The world then was not so dependent on electronic communication systems, however All this matters because, as laid out in a report earlier this year by the National Academy of Sciences, a major solar storm nowadays could cause up to $2 trillion in initial damages by crippling communications on Earth and fueling chaos among residents and even governments in a scenario that would require four to 10 years for recovery.
Equation: Sunspots => Solar Flares => Magnetic Field Shift => Shifting Ocean and Jet Stream Currents => Extreme Weather and Human Disruption.

sky over northern Quebec(amazing pictures)








The whole sky was green, purple, I had a hard time deciding where to aim my cameras! Here are 3 pictures taken from a long series to make an animation of the movement. Nikon D3s , 10 000 ASA, 10.5 mm f2.8 set at full frame to get wider than the Dx format ! the last one was taken with a Nikon D3 with a 28mm f1.4 at 3200 ASA

The pictures are sweet. I'm flying back to the UK tonight from North America, and I'll keepy my camera handy to see if I can catch any snaps.

I'll post pictures here as soon as I have them. Or not, if there aren't any worth posting.

Anyone know how far south in the US they have ever been seen? Seems like I've heard rare instances of them being seen pretty far south, but never how far.


I remember aurora's beeing seen as far south as texas about 8-10 years ago

I saw them when I was very little in Clarksburg, West Virginia.

This was more than half a century ago

I am surprised.

Two pages and not one person has claimed that the spectacle in the sky is a black hole, wormhole, portal to another dimension or a stargate!


Noobastronomer (and aWkiee), nice pics!

Beautiful, I have seen the Northern Lights as low as Dorset, England. This was over twenty years ago. So tonight I will be looking up even this far south (with camera of optimism).

We had a bit of a show in MN last night...

The pics on the digi cam didn't turn out at all though


Waiting to see if the old school ones on film did any better!

If this is just the beginning of a solar cycle, I think we are in for a treat as far as light shows go!
