Looks like it will hit G5 and K9 (the highest number of the K scale) between 0900-1200 zulu tonight/tomorrow morning. Instead of peeking outside late tonight, I think I'll just hit the rack early and get up at 0400.

Also, I found a neat smartphone astrophotography guide from NASA if anyone is interested:

This morning was about the same intensity as yesterday in my AO. Yesterday, the show was directly North and lower in the sky. This morning, it was NE and higher in the sky. I still haven't been able to get color images. Though this morning under NODs, there was a meteor shower going on simultaneously, so that was kinda cool.

On another place I visit someone mentioned that they were 50 years old and this is the first time they saw the Aurora Australis and was wondering what caused them.

By far the most entertaining and surprisingly accurate answer was: It is the sun farting and the earth's atmosphere getting dutch ovened.

It somehow works.   :rofl:

Tell your curious friends it's the same thing as what goes on in a neon sign... but bigger.

I looked very early Sunday Morning, and although we had a clear sky, nothing was showing here, even under NODs or with a digital camera sensor.  My aunt in North FL syas she saw some at her place though, so it looks like we just missed them.  My Parents in Alaska didn't see anything due to AK's very on brand overcast and cold drizzle springtime weather.

I'm not too sad, because I've seen the lights a lot, but it's cool that a lot of folks got to see them for the first time.  They are pretty neat to watch.


Side Note:  I already saw on Twitter this morning that they were fake.  The.gov (and probably the jooz) fired up HAARP on Friday and made the lights.  The idea is to normalize them in the south, and then they can just make them appear when they have their grid killing event to [insert nefarious goal here] and blame it on a "solar flare".  It's basically just like COVID you sheep.  Wake up!  Man the internet has some high test crazy sometimes.

Got lucky with this one

Region 3664 not done yet! Produces X8.7 flare...largest of the solar cycle!
published: Tuesday, May 14, 2024 17:29 UTC

Region 3664 produced yet ANOTHER X-ray flare as it moves beyond the Western solar limb!! This time, it was an X8.7 flare, the largest of this solar cycle! Due to its location, any CME associated with this flare will likely NOT have any geomagnetic impacts on Earth. As always, stay tuned to our website for updates!  **CORRECTED for magnitude 8.7, not 8.8**

Did we all just catch a bit more radiation? Should we remind the folks who hate green energy about that?
