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.

Indeed, wish I had your talent with a camera though.  Mine are amateurish, I can try to set up a picture and it will come out wrong, my sister can snap a picture at a building in a moving car and it will come out nice.

Sounds like maybe you just need to get to know your equipment a little better. :) I don't shoot with an expensive camera - but I've been at it for eons, and I can adjust my settings without even looking at my camera anymore. Shooting in low light is really great practice for that! (read: aurora photography) LOL
I ask a lot of questions of photographers I admire, and on DA it's kind of great to have the image data automatically displayed when it's available. It helps me choose my settings. I always look for that information when I see a photo I really like.
