Look out for Aurorae

The Sun seems to be fairly active at the moment and there have been quite a few aurora sightings in the last week or so. It is well worth checking out the sky after dark if it is clear.

There are a number of websites you can use to check on the levels of solar activity and hence chances of aurora. One of the best, and relatively local is the University of Lancaster Aurorawatch site.

Good luck, let us know how you get on at our October meeting.
