Subject: Another Auroral Light Show?


Hi everyone!

Thanks to another major eruption on the Sun which is sending
charged particles towards the Earth, observers of the night sky
who live in the mid-latitudes (eg. New York, Toronto, etc.) will
get yet another chance to see the aurora - nature's evening
light show - tonight and/or tomorrow night. The aurora or
"northern lights" ("southern lights" for those living in the
southern hemisphere) are frequently seen only in much more
northern (or southern) latitudes.

Although the phase of the Moon is past full and rises in the
east late in the evening, it will brighten the sky enough to
bleach out the light show after midnight.

If you are going out to have a look, find a dark place to
observe from and allow a few minutes for your eyes to get dark
adapted. Don't forget to let us know if you noticed something
out of the ordinary up there too. One reason, I believe, that
more UFO sightings are not made from urban areas is that people
do not frequently step out from their homes and look up to the
sky.
