- PSA – aurora borealis tonight
No chance of seeing it Brum
it happens, but not very often. When I left Brum in the mid 90s and moved to Scotland the northern lights sodded off down to Brum instead. A friend of my dads there is a radio ham and he was having fun with sending and receiving transmissions bounced off the lights and talking to folk further away than he normally could as the bounce helped get round the curve of the earth- all be it in weird ghostly whispers because only part of the signal would bounce.Posted 4 years ago

Link Scotroutes posted above shows the earth rotating towards it, updates every 30 seconds – worth a watch.
Many of our subscribers are asking about the prospects of seeing ?#?aurora? tonight. The solar wind has returned to pre-CME levels so the chance of aurora is no higher than average (ie low, but not zero). Our alert system will send out alerts should activity increase to the level where we expect aurora may be seen from the UK.
Looks like I can treat myself to a cider after all.Posted 4 years ago
