 I haven't posted in a while, but I want to say that there is an incredible geomagnetic storm going on right now, KP (a measure of geomagnetic activity; we usually go look for auroras if it reaches five) is up to eight. If you live somewhere Northish, consider checking the sky for auroras tonight! It has been a long time since it was this good.

I hope the storm sticks around a while, won't be dark here for ages.

Eight!!

I have aurorawatch notifications from the University of Lancaster and they're predicting possible auroras throughout the UK:

Low cloud until midnight then rising ground fog. A few people over here were luckier but mostly only with cameras and not unassisted human eyes.

Did you see anything? I regrettably did not. Clouds!
