A Conversation for Jimi X's Observatory is Closed

Aurora Borealis

Post 1


There has been a warning of a geomagnetic storm from NOAA (http://sec.noaa.gov/advisories/200004061951_advisory.html ) and reports of aurora sightings very far south (Paris, S England, Washington DC) http://www.spacew.com/www/auroras.html
If you're interested better look out quickly.

This report was influenced by seeing the above links on Slashdot.I just thought you might like the info here.

Sorry I missed this Phil! They need to figure out a way to let people know when somebody responds to a page.

Anyhow, did you catch any aurora activity? I've only ever seen them once from my latitude (back in the mid-1980s).

Check out the Observatory - it's been updated for June and has a listing for the h2g2 University scheme that Peta plans to announce on Tuesday. We've already begun if you'd like to find out more, just follow the link! smiley - smiley

Thanks for stopping by (even if it was a couple of months ago!)!!

I didn't actually see anything (other than the usual skyglow of London). I think I put this in the main observatory thread as well as starting this new one if anyone saw anything.
I've just got my copy of the ham radio magazine I get and the cover photo is taken by a ham based in Oxfordshire and is a wonderful fill of red and green.

I'll check out the university listing thing to see if I can do anything.

My old observatory is closed!

Peta asked me to take over the h2g2 University Observatory
at http://www.h2g2.com/A338951

So, that's where you can now go for a sky update!
