Geomagnetic storm conditions (G4, Kp8) were reported in the early hours of this morning (24th March 2023), and my meteor camera caught quite a bit of auroral activity. Anyone actually see any aurora?


It was cloudy when l looked out but with London to the North no chance anyway.

A couple of my astro chums saw it in Norfolk and Roger Nicholson ex member caught some activity on his all sky camera in Worthing Bortle 4.



Another magnetic storm hit early this morning. It was still building at sunrise, so North America should be getting some aurora now, but my meteor camera caught some auroral activity as well as a fair few meteors, even though the sky wasn't perfectly clear.
