Aurora Alert

The UK Sub-Auroral Magnetometer Network, operated by Lancaster University, has issued an amber alert for a possible geomagnetic storm (aurora). This agrees with the USAF Space Forecast Centre's planetary K-index plots, so it looks like now might be a good time to see aurora. These will presumably be linked to sunspot group 767. If it is dark and clear where you are, go have a look outside especially if you live quite far north or quite far south of the equator.
