Due to the influence of the geomagnetic storm, we can observe the aurora borealis again from Europe. Last night, a rare aurora borealis was observed in our territory, which is rarely seen in Slovakia. With a bit of luck, we can do it tonight. Last night, the aurora borealis was observed in the territory of western Slovakia. This is a phenomenon that is not at all common in Slovakia and appears rather exceptionally. Last night it appeared more or less unexpectedly, since the chances of aurora borealis in such southern latitudes as the location of Slovakia were not too great, but it happened. Yesterday, there were better chances for observation from North America than from Europe. This night, the tables have been conceptually turned, and the chance for seeing the aurora borealis is this time higher from Europe than from America. We have decent chances, but a bit of luck is also needed Residents of the Nordic countries can already look forward to this breathtaking experience, but with a bit of luck, we could also spot it from our territory. Residents of the northern regions of Slovakia have a slightly higher chance. The aurora borealis will be visible throughout the night, but the exact time cannot be predicted. Green, yellow or purple “dancing” lights may appear in the night sky, so be on the lookout. Aurora Borealis Prediction for Thursday. Source: NOAA Space Weather Auroras are caused by geomagnetic storms according to intensity. On Wednesday, a geomagnetic storm of class G1 to G2 hit our Earth, causing auroras even at lower latitudes than usual, around 50° latitude. A stronger geomagnetic storm will hit the Earth A geomagnetic storm will hit the Earth today too, but it will be somewhat stronger and as a result of this phenomenon, it is again possible to observe the aurora borealis in slightly more southern locations. The series of CMEs is expected to hit the Earth’s magnetic field on Thursday or early Friday morning, potentially triggering a strong G3 geomagnetic storm, SpaceWeather reports. Auroras are one of the most beautiful phenomena in the night sky. If you manage to make a “catch”, we will be glad if you send it to us.
