Default Celestial geekery

Geomagnetic K-index of 7 Threshold reached @ 7:28 pm EDT. NOAA Scale: G3-Strong. Northern lights poss. by midnight.

Basically, there was a big fart storm on the sun that pissed the protons and neutrons in the air off making it possible for people who live as far south in Michigan as I do to see the Northern Lights.
If you live in the country, get outside tonight and enjoy!

I wouldn't be able to see them here, too many lights in an urban area for that.
Where you're at is prime.

I haven't seen them this far south since 1994 or 95.
That showing held me in absolute awe. I laid in the grass and watched them for nearly 20 minutes that time. Nature is amazing!

No, that was the parking lot lighting of the social security and bridge card assistance centers.

Wrong, that was reflections off the leftover snow from the blizzard of 78

I have seen them out by me a year or so ago. Didn't know what was going on in the sky when I looked up, saw it on the news a little later that night. I was pretty cool, though the clouds did move in and obscure the rest of the view for the night...
