They announced this last night and said it should continue for a couple of days. Good luck -- I wish I were there!

Plus it's the dark of the moon, which makes it easier to see the aurora.

I am within the viewing zone, but the massive Calgary city lights glow drown out the night sky unless I drive 50 miles out into the boonies somewhere.

Thanks for sharing.

Not happening as they originally thought. Seems they may have been mistaken:

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Well, we're going to live around Los Anchorage and a good part of SC Alaska....the beneficent fog and low lying clouds kept the evil geostorm death rays from reaching the atmosphere.

...and blocked available aurora as well. [emoticon]

Clearing and cooling as we type...maybe clear enough tonight to catch a view.

Last night we decided it's time to do a vaca in a month where we can see the aurora in Alaska, Iceland or Norway. If things had gone as planned this year we would have been in Fairbanks in September and would have at least had a chance to see them.
