I don't have a good camera but I wanted to see if anyone else in the area is seeing this. I'm in laredo tx. and am seeing what i believe are auroras. They aren't as bright or colorful as those I've seen in the poles but I see them. Is anyone in south tx. seeing them?;jsessionid=05B6480F989C111DF1BBACAD158038A8?contentguid=n4McoaQ5

Nothing in Houston... can you get some pix?

Anything from an SLR with a slow shutter speed would be awesome!

Check any scientific website in relation to the solar flares. It has been plainly stated that the Auroras would be seen much further south then normal as a result of the flares effects on the magnetosphere.

NORTHERN LIGHTS IN CALIFORNIA - October 29, 2003 A historic geomagnetic storm: Two powerful coronal mass ejections associated with X17.2 and X10.0 solar flares impacted the Earth on October 29 and 30, followed by severe to extreme geomagnetic storm conditions. Spectacular auroral displays have been observed as far south as California, Arizona, Texas and Florida.

It's happened before
Take a look at the site, some of the pix are phenomenal. the X2.2 was a big deal in Northern parts, IMAGINE what the 17.2 would have looked like!

I am in Freer TX. What direction should I look? I am about 60 Miles North.

If you still see it; maybe I'll get out of the city lights and gander that way.

I saw them towards the south east of laredo. About 5 minutes ago I could see them under the moon. Seemed like they were dissapating.

I got out for a minute, but there is too much low cloud cover to see anything here.

Nothing in Austin texas. Full moon and light cloud cover, stars a visible and the air is clear.

I'm sorry my post was lame with no pics. I know they were auroras, there was even some slight color change. I wish yall coulda seen it. Strange days are upon us indeed. Wonder if the ufos have trouble with their compasses during solar flares.

The solar flares were not intense enough to be seen that far south. I know on the west coast even seeing them in Oregon was a bit hard. On the east coast only as south as Ohio was possible. You must be seeing another thing. The flares would have to be quite major to be seen that far south.
