Hi there! I thought I would quickly put together a blog with some good website links to learn more about the aurora. With an active geomagnetic storm underway, the aurora may be visible tonight for the northern US and Canada (and other high latitude locations around the world).
Here are some great links/good websurfing material to determine if the aurora will be visible in your area and links to better understand what is going on.
I really like this website to see if the aurora will be visible near you. It is still a trial model forecast of the aurora: http://helios.swpc.noaa.gov/ovation/ This is the website that I grabbed the image from and showed on the air in our 11pm newscast on ABC22 (see video above).
General, easy to understand Space Weather activity: http://spaceweather.com/

Finally, if you are completely clueless as the where to start with space weather and what it means, I'd recommend web surfing and reading up with this website first (you will need to set up an account)...
