The strongest geomagnetic storm of the current solar cycle is happening now. If you are in the northern latitudes and have a clear sky tonight (or it's night right now), I would head to somewhere dark and take a look. We even have a new moon! I so wish I was back in Iceland right now!

Reports last night had sightings as far south as Illinois.

Our radio at work has been fuzzing out all day. I even joked with my boss about sunspots before I saw the story about the solar storm.

Been out for almost 3 hrs tonight. We don't often see them as well we did tonight. Quite a nice display. They are still out there dancing around, but I had to leave. Lousy photos but worth getting cold for.

I forgot to go out to look.

We had a look, but it was quite hazy, so all we saw was just a very faint, colourless imitation of the aurora. Bad luck.

The storm is subsiding, so probably not like the last two nights...
