Aurora Australis

Tonight's Aurora Australis from Christchurch was particularly nice. Some great beams during the 30 minutes I watched it for, including some very that were very bright to the naked eye. Thankfully the clouds parted at just the right time.

Wow. Going down south in Feb to Queens town with overseas folks. Does this sighting happens around that time of the year.

[USER=1]@Grant[/USER] is there a "solar CME or coronal hole" watch list somewhere. [USER=102]@dansar[/USER] same bucket list. Did not see it when doing night skiing in Canada.

First stop is staying at Mount Cook with visitors for the night sky. Don't see much stars at night in Malaysia. Any advice is welcome.

Its like trying to forecast rain. If there is an aurora forecast for the night, look south and hope there is no moon. You may see nothing at midnight, 5 minutes later there may be a glow. You wont see colours with the naked eye unless its very strong. Usually it looks like a feint cloud or if you are lucky, columns.
