Auroral activity to increase

by KTNA Staff ~ March 9th, 2011

The Alaska Geophysical Institute is predicting higher than normal aurora activity Wednesday and Thursday evening. In a recent activity update they wrote:  There were two “M-class” events on the sun on the 7th of March. We estimate that the effects of these events will reach Earth on the 9th and 10th of March. This should produce magnetic activity leading to Kp=4. This corresponds to our auroral index = 4. Check the forecast page maps appropriate to your area to see if the aurora would be visible to you.
