Folks in the far north probably already know this, but there's a storm coming. The news focuses mostly on the disruption to GPS, but there are some mentions of auroral activity:

CNBC news item

The aurora forecasts are "active," and there is a new moon. On the minus side, the night is short at this time of year.

Good luck!

Of course it always happens during cloudy or foggy nights or during a week of snow, bummer.

It has arrived , but right now 10am PDST its most southerly point overhead is just touching the US at around Lake of the Woods MN and low on the horizon further south. Whether that will hold until it gets dark is another matter ! Link

Was unaware of this event taking place...

Skies were clear for the last two days in my area, was mostly clear in Anchorage on Tuesday the 13th as I had to go there for one day only (first day missing work all summer long), and driven 782 miles there and back in a 22 hr and 45 min span (and was 75% dark thru the Alaska Range on the return portion of the trip).

Still did not see any activity within this Anchorage to Fairbanks latitude during this whole week, however - in my area at N64.9 latitude, it doesn't get dark until the first week of August (11 weeks of darkless summer here).
