No clouds here, but my northern horizon is light polluted. Just about
enough aurora in the NW to see slight green colour distinct from light
pollution but not a particularly strong display when I was looking.

It made BBC weather forecast on the late evening news 10.30pm.

Alerts from spaceweather.com and Lancs Uni Aurorawatch.

Kp about 6, which it has to be to produce a visible aurora here and
forecast to rise:

Unfortunately it fell back again soon after. Still a nice pre-start for
Astronomy Week which begins tomorrow with local events around the UK.
