A quick heads up to confirm that there does look to be a possibility of Aurora tonight.

Right now, the Aurora are reaching as far down as Thunder Bay, Ontario (2AM EDT). Here is the current picture from the Spaceweather Live app.

If this picture holds then there is a chance we could see some Aurora overtop the Beauforts or across the Strait of Georgia tonight.

The best time is usually around 2AM and the best place will be somewhere with as little light pollution as you can find with a clear view of the northern sky.

Good luck stargazers!
