So... just last night, I caught my first glimpse of an Aura! Man was it awesome...
Anyways... this storm is a strong one!
Now: Kp= 5 storm
24-hr max: Kp= 6 storm
The highest I've ever seen on this site before is 5! I check this thing daily... I wouldn't be surprised if this is the strongest geomagnetic storm
Earth has seen for quite some time!
Where can you view this awesomeness from?
speed: 459.1 km/sec
density: 4.0 protons/cm3
The speed isn't necessarily all that amazing, but... the density is fairly high from what I've read. I'm not going to pretend to be the most
knowledgeable person on the subject. If there are any ATS members that would be willing to share any information in regards to the topic, and the
'strength' of this particular storm, I"M ALL EARS!
Anyways... I thought I'd just bring attention to this, in hopes that maybe it will inspire someone to look up and take in the beauty of Auras. It's
not every day that someone can see them from as far south as Iowa.
