High chance of a visible Aurora starting today through the weekend
A moderately popular question asked on this forum is whether it is possible to see the Aurora Borealis from Scotland. The short answer is yes and according to the popular Aurora Watch UK twitter account
, it seems highly likely for the next 3 nights starting tonight. This is due to an active geomagnetic storm during this period.
Aurora is a phenomena best spotted away from sources of light pollution. So if you live in a city / town, you might need to take a short drive to a darker area to spot it clearly.
Post a photo if anyone in the community is lucky enough to catch a glimpse!
