Earlier this week a major solar flare sped toward earth (roughly four million miles per hour) and was scheduled to hit the atmosphere at about
2100 hours GMT Thursday. This should have resulted in a spectacular display of the Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis.

As usual, upstate New York was covered in a solid ceiling if clouds and I could barely tell where the moon was, let alone anything else. Did anyone happen to notice the northern sky during their nighttime hours?
Heavy cloud cover again tonight BTW.

Mmmm...yeah! Thanks for the reply, BTW. I was hoping maybe one of our members more to the Northwest or maybe the deep Southern Hemisphere might have spotted something. :sad:


(Or else people aren't that interested in The Earth Sciences any more)
