Enchanted Forest 01-21-2016
The aurora seemed to be emanating from our biggest birch tree on the morning of January 21st, for a while. The eye of the corona perched itself directly above the highest branches in my yard.

Interests
I know I tend to get kind of technical but in the simplest terms:
If you have ever wanted to see aurora in person, the next 48 hours, beginning this evening could be one of those rare times when you might even see the lights far south of where you'd normally expect to. (Maybe even as far south as Arkansas again!!!)

Just remember, if you're NOT out there looking, there's NO WAY you'll experience this amazing phenomenon in person.


Wondering if you'll be able to see the aurora from this X flare in your area?
Here's an example of why that could very well happen tonight!
On October 24th, 2011 an aurora storm with a Kp index of 7 sparked the lights you see in the photo linked below, taken by Brian Emfinger of OZARK, ARKANSAS, not far from his home.
An X class flare can easily send enough energy to trigger a Kp index of 7 (out of 0-9), or even higher, and in fact, a Kp 7 has been estimated for this event.
