Just a heads up for photographers in the lower SI.
Conditions are looking quite promising for aurora viewing tonight. There's storm level geomagnetic activity, skies are clear, and moon set is just before midnight.
It looked like the geomagnetic storm was subsiding (which of course it probably will do of course - just because I posted this) but for now it's still over KP8 (on a scale of 0 to 9).
It's going to be very cold - so sorry if this turns out to be a fizzer.
