Re: Auroral Conditions


As Kirk will surely attest, there was a show in our northern sky, last night. However, it was a thunderstorm putting on the show instead of an aurora. Thankfully, it's a degree or two cooler today following three 100°F (37.7°C) plus days - our first of the summer.

There is still a possibility we might be able to see an aurora tonight. There have been very few here in my lifetime, the last was about two decades ago.

Radio reception was definitely influenced by the auroral activity this morning. Usually strong CBW 990 was replaced by XET 990. Because I was playing around with my recently modified PL-310, I didn't hear anything new.

Good DX.
