This is the time of year that Cook Inlet gives of what little heat it has as do the lakes and night fog can become thick. And low pressure systems continually come up and off the Pacific and straight up the Inlet. Once the snow flies and we have clear crisp nights I will have the opportunity.

Tips on Viewing the Aurora
Being able to see the Aurora depends mainly on two factors, geomagnetic activity (the degree of disturbance of the earth's magnetic field at the time) and your geographic location. Further considerations are the weather at your location, and light pollution from city lights, full moon and so forth.
Geomagnetic Activity -- The Kp Index and the NOAA POES Auroral Activity Level
In order to know whether you have a chance of seeing an aurora, you need to know the level of geomagnetic activity at the time you are viewing. There is a simple index called Kp, a number from 0 to 9, which is used to refer to geomagnetic activity for a 3-hour period. Check the Space Environment Center's bar plot of Estimated Planetary Kp to see what has been happening during the past couple of days. This plot updates every 3 hours with the latest Kp value. The Space Environment Center's Solar-Geophysical Forecast for the next 24 hours (see SEC's Today's Space Weather page) might also be of help. If the GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY FORECAST is for "storm" levels SEC expects Kp indices of 5 or greater. Another indication of geomagnetic activity is the NOAA POES Auroral Activity Level, which is a number from 1 to 10. Further down on this page is a table that shows how Kp and the Auroral Activity Level compare with each other. Take a look at SEC's POES Auroral Activity page to see the latest Activity Level. Moon phases can also be found on the web.
