Aurora tonight?

Hmmm. I just received an email alert telling me that there’s a lot of “auroral activity” at the moment… no promises, but MIGHT be worth keeping an eye on the skty after dark tonight (Wed)…

  1. What, even in Manchester?

  2. If it’s the one I got (from Lancaster) then they’ve just issued an apology. Seems the alert was generated as a result of “human activity” at their field site.

  3. Just thought to add that it’s a pity it’s not for real as it was slightly plausible with the current large sunspot.

    Andrew, yes, aurora can come this far south though it’s pretty rare. See, for example, these from 2000:
