The effects of the solar events of the last days have reached Earth and a
large magnetic storm is in progress.  The aurora associated with this storm
is already covering Scandinavia.  It should be visible in Central Europe
during the night.

Because of the activity following the initial shock, we expect this storm to
continue; if it does at the present level, it will be visible across the
northern half of the continental US, Southern New Zealand, Tasmania, and
even the southern coast of Victoria, Australia.

Go to http://www.gi.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast/ and choose a map for your
region, then monitor the short-term forecast panel for the extent of the
latest nighttime activity in your region.
