    Default Did anyone see the aurora last night/this morning?



    The website that I use was calling for storms to start around 6:00p.m. They didn't start till 11 or 12. I managed to stay up till about 1:30. I really wish I had gone to bed early so I could have goten up at about 3 or 4 to see it. I managed a few pics and hoping to catch more this evening.

    Anyone else have any luck?

    Yeah not worth it to me. Can't get a decent night's sleep in Siberia, and the coffee is always 'iced'

    Too cloudy here. There might be another one tonight, but it's even cloudier.

    I'm in southern Wisconsin and I was able to capture some last night. Mostly was getting the pink hues of it but still cool. Tonight should be much better.

    Expect some great pictures. The only lights I see to the North are from car dealerships.
