Apparently there could be some impressive northern lights due to solar activity today. Anyone seen anything or been looking?

____ Where we live I hope so, I will be looking however, even with the storm predicted.

____ Slowly humankind is putting up more and more lights, adding to the light pollution.

____ I am unsure if non-Hams can open this page but here is more info.

____ littlefish, I did attempt to observe the lights, but S. Palin shut off the lower 48 to keep the view to herself.

____ The night of 3/4 Aug we had overcast, last night, I went to bed too early, however I was up during the night, I did not notice them, it is still dark but sunrise is an hour away and I am not seeing any activity.

____ Littlefish, thanks for the heads up I'll stay up a little later.

____ Even though I did not see anything, it has affected the Ham bands 20meters the long haul band is dead, however 2meter FM is clean and clear with some skip coming in.
