2014 Sept 13 update: No reports of aurora seen from Ireland last night (it was well seen from higher latitudes around world though).
Aurora expected again tonight (Saturday), look at north horizon, all night long.
It may just be a small 'whitish' glow on the north horizon (that looks green in photos!) or it may erupt into a major display of bright rays and 'curtains' in the north, or, in extreme cases all over the sky (as seen in Halloween 2003!).
Please email observe@astronomy.ie if you see anything, or even if you try but see nothing (tell us your location and weather conditions especially any cloud cover) and send any photos too please.
Also, please text 086 06 46 555 (immediately please) if you do see aurora (but email a full report for our magazine report later please).
