The northern lights right nowLow activity. If you are located within latitude range 64.5º N or higher you have a chance to see the aurora if the weather and light conditions are optimal. The aurora might be visible from places as far south as Fort Good Hope (ca), Hughes (United states), Egilsstadir (Iceland), Skellefteå (Sweden) and Mo i Rana (Norway).
|KP INDEX||G SCALE|
|SOLAR WIND SPEED||PROTON DENSITY|
|336 km/sec||1.49 protons/cm3|
|4.195 nT||-2.629 nT|
What does this mean?
The KP index indicates the width of the auroral oval and how far south the aurora can be seen. A higher KP value increases the chance of seeing the aurora.
The Bz value measures the solar wind’s magnetic field direction when it reaches Earth, and a negative Bz value can lead to stronger auroral activity. High solar wind speed and proton density also increase aurora visibility.
The combination of these factors predicts auroral activity. A high KP value, negative Bz value, high solar wind speed, and proton density can result in a vivid and dynamic aurora.
If these factors align, step outside and enjoy the view 🙂
