I'm in southern Arkansas and it's too cloudy to even see anything. But it is bright behind the clouds because they are very lit up. Don't think they would cause you to go blind though?

Do we know which direction the wave is coming from? Where to observe?

Clear skies here at N44/W63, nothing unusual from what I can see. Seems like we're going to be disappointed yet again. The moon looks kinda cool though, pretty bright tonight, I guess that's our consolation prize.

Went outside to check the sky here in extreme North East Texas. It is partly cloudy, the moon is very bright and so far so good here.

Just walked out into the "country dark" here in southside VA. The moon is also really bright to me. Some fast moving wisps of clouds. The moon appears to have a somewhat rainbow halo around it. I am not sure I have seen that type of halo around it before, but I generally don't go out looking this late/early.

I live in Florida. Its somewhat cloudy here also, but none right now. The moon is actually pretty damn bright tonight, compared to other times i've seen the full moons. Debating on whether I should bring my telescope out. Beautiful night.

Just went to take another look, and yeah the moon is really really bright, but I'm wondering if anyone here knows if solar flares are capable or known to produce a bright moon effect? I mean I've seen it this bright before many times so it could easily be a coincidence.

Can't see anything from where I am in Yorkshire, too much light pollution, cloud and mist.

Sucks here in Calgary too, we have an overcast and cannot see anything.

We usually see the northern lights so tonight should have been good, but NOOO, of course I couldn't see anything.


Damn weather.

I think that should be "Typical British cloudy weather hampers rare glimpses of northern lights over UK"

I believe its because the atmosphere has been pierced. So the Moon shines brighter, due to the layer being opened by an object coming into our atmosphere. Solar flares have nothing to do with the Moon itself being brighter.
