THE NORTHERN LIGHTS RIGHT NOW

Moderate activity. If you are located within latitude range 60.4º 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 Falun (Sweden), Anchorage (United States), Eldikan (Russia), Fort Simpson (Canada) Steinkjær (norway) and Hamar (Norway).

The KP index is a scale that indicates the strength of the northern lights and can be used to predict how far south the northern lights are visible. The G scale indicates the strength of the storm.

A high KP value does not necessarily mean that the northern lights will be visible to the naked eye. The direction of the lines in the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) from the sun also plays a major role. IMF is measured in Bz. A negative Bz value means that the IMF lines are facing south and the chance of seeing the aurora is greater.
