Just found this site and wanted to share the find with anyone interested in aurora observing. It's a "test" program so who knows how long it will be available so enjoy it while you can
The link does not seem to be included in this post. Use" OVATION aurora" on a search engine ?( It does go to the site)
Mead DS-10 (10" newt)
10x50 Focal Bino
10x70 Orion Bino
What goes around, comes around, eventually.
Anyone see any aurora from above 40 degrees latitude on the night of 3/9-10/12?
The map that you mentioned might be at http://helios.swpc.noaa.gov/ovation/
Sic itur ad astra!
Chance favors the prepared mind.
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
That's the one Dave. I tried pasting the URL but it didn't come out in the post. Thanks for getting it on the thread.
For anyone interested in these prediction maps, I have done some posting on other astronomy sites and there seems to be a mixed opinion on the OVATION site as to its accuracy. Though the site claimed that aurora would be seen almost half way down the U.K., several observers did not see any (nights of 3/9-10/12).
The best I've seen so far is on the below site (a new one) and time will tell if it will be a useful one.AuroraForecast
