Geomagnetic warning and Aurora Happening NOW (28 March)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Unaided eye Aurora with beams are being reported over the past hour from multiple sites in Tasmania. The SWS has issued a geomagnetic disturbance alert. Hobart Kindex is 6 but other parameters are less exciting (Velocity: 720 km/sec Bz: 1.0 nT Density = 4.0 p/cc ) although we have had good aurora under these conditions before. Despite consistent reports at the moment conditions may fluctuate rapidly through the evening so there may be several bursts of short lived aurora, last night conditions stabilised around 11 with persistent aurora until around 1 am.

Dark sky sites have the best chance of seeing anything, and always allow around 5 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted.

As always look to the south for shifting red/green glows, beams have been reported consistently over the last few aurora, as well as bright proton arcs and “picket fences”.

Cloud cover predictions can be found at SkippySky.  

The all sky aurora camera in Northern Tasmania at Cressy is being upgraded and is not yet online.
