just passing this along, and hope it is as good this time as it was a few weeks ago

A solar event occurred on the central meridian of the sun at midnight on the 2nd Greenwich time.  The shock should reach Earth late on the 4th
Greenwich time.  This should lead to aurora visible from Northern Europe and Northern United States on the night of the December 4, 2004 local
time.

That's one of the main phenomena that kept me living in Alaska for 6 years. I often went outside (bundled up) into the night at sub-zero temps to get a 'closer' look at my rainbow dancing lights. Fortunately, some of the best auroras are seen at lower latitudes. Dang, hope the skies are clear here tonight, for some eastern Oregonians saw Aurora's dance once already this winter.
thanks for the heads-up! I hadn't heard that tonight's dance party might be visible way down here!!

I somehow knew I would find Kacy dancing in this news, I just wonder if we are far enough north to see this.  Thanks Kraw, for the announcement.

It was socked in here and getting ready to snow, but I have wonderful memories of the aurora from living in northern Canada years ago. That will have to suffice I guess! Thanks for letting us know.
