(UPDATE May 4: Click HERE to see what a fine show the aurora gave us overnight.)
Watch for auroras tonight. 15 minutes ago, a bright arc lit up in the northern sky here in Duluth, Minn. No way to know if it will fade or go wild, so be sure to take a look if it’s clear tonight. The magnetic field in the solar wind tipped southward this evening, weaseling a connection to Earth’s own magnetic domain and sparking a small display of northern lights. I’m headed back out for more. Good luck – let’s hope it continues.
