Did You See an Aurora?

So, did you see an aurora? I got an email from my Dad at 4:00 am PST letting me know that he could see white ribbons of light directly overhead (Southwestern Canada). John Chumack was in Ohio and sent in the picture you see beside this story – they look like a red curtain against the horizon. He saw them twice at 4:30 am and 5:40 am.

The bulk of the storm hit us this morning, but the aurora should be visible for another day or two. So, have another try tonight and see if you can get lucky. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, look towards the north, and if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, look south.

If you did see an aurora, let me know, I want to hear all about it. Send in pictures if you took them. If I get enough letters, I’ll put them into a story tomorrow, so be vivid in your description of what you saw. Just reply to this newsletter, or send me an email at [email protected].

Good luck!
