The latest forecast via the NOAA NWS Space Weather Prediction Center:

A filament eruption and associated low-level solar flare occurred late Sunday afternoon, producing a S2 (Moderate) solar radiation storm which remains in progress at this time. The eruption resulted in a partially Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME). As a result, G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storming is expected to commence mid-day on October 2nd with G2 (Moderate) expected on the 3rd, a slight upward revision from initial estimates. No further activity is expected at this time given the lack of substantial sunspots, but stay tuned for updates as this event unfolds.

Translation: Northern lights are possible Wednesday night and more likely Thursday night!!

Ken Scott has a lot of photographic gifts, but taking photos of the aurora borealis has to be near the top! See what I mean in his Northern Lights slideshow and purchase beautiful photos at!
