Look to the northern skies tonight, (Tues Aug 3 - thru early morn Aug 4), for lights similar to the aurora borealis. I know the northern states should be able to view this but I am not sure how far south this will go. Sadly we are too have storms tonight in Charlotte, NC so I may never know if the lights made it this far south.

If you have kids, just tell them the lights are a magical gift from Glenda the good witch of the north unless they are big science buffs then they will be telling you what the lights are.

Enjoy and please let me know if you see the lights.

Hey, achristmasstory.

If you go to arrl.org they have a column called the K7RA Solar Update... lots of info there. I think it's updated every week.
Also check out spaceweather.com Looks like they have some photos of auroras being observed in Europe now.
