THE NORTHERN LIGHTS RIGHT NOWLow to moderate activity. If you are located within latitude range 62.3º 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 Namsos (Norway), Dawson City (Canada), Kaltag (United States), Reykjavik (Iceland) and Steinkjær (Norway).
|KP INDEX||G SCALE|
|SOLAR WIND SPEED||PROTON DENSITY|
|333.8 km/sec||9.07 protons/cm3|

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
KP index gives us an indication of the width of the auroral oval and how far south the aurora can be observed. The higher the KP value, the greater the chance of seeing aurora.
The Bz value measures the direction of the solar wind’s magnetic field when it reaches Earth, and a negative Bz value can lead to stronger auroral activity. High solar wind speed and high proton density can also increase the chances of seeing aurora.
The combination of these factors can provide a better indication of the type of auroral activity to expect. High KP value, negative Bz value, high solar wind speed, and proton density can result in strong and dancing aurora.
If all these factors align, you should go outside and enjoy the view 🙂
