Default AURORA OUTLOOK: Sky watchers should be alert for aurora tonight

Ref: http://spaceweather.com/

watchers should be alert for auroras
tonight. A solar wind stream is flowing
toward Earth from a coronal hole on
the sun, and auroras could appear
when the stream arrives on March
9th or 10th. The best displays will be
at high latitudes--e.g., Alaska, Canada,
and perhaps northern-tier US states
like Wisconsin and Minnesota.
