9th October


Tonight’s estimated aurora level:

Level 4 – High

Forecast:
Auroral activity will be at high levels. Weather permitting, aurora displays will be visible overhead or on the horizon in Trondheim (Norway), Vaasa (Finland), Sundsvall (Sweden) and Faeroe Islands.

Comments:
The CME hit early, it was a great show last night. The solar wind is still flowing fast around 570 km/s, and is still reaching levels of kp4+, but it will start weakening soon. There might be enough left in it to produce nice shows early tonight. But there is also supposed to be another CME impact tonight at some point, if this happens, keep an eye on the real time forecast, because it should spark auroras again!
