The forecast for Aurora Strength is currently 7/10. If the skies are clear and you have patience, the odds are very good you will see the show if you get far enough out of town and away from light pollution.
Oh, any time the forecast is 4/10 or higher the chances are good anything 5/10 the chances of seeing them get really good.
Oh and look North.
A great starting point for Aurora Photography 1. Set your lens to the widest aperture (lowest number i.e. 2.8 or 1.4) the wider the better. 2. set your ISO to 800 (1600 if your camera can handle the noise, most older cameras cannot) 3. Turn the dial to Bulb Mode 4. Hook up a shutter release to the camera. 5. Set the focus on your lens to infinity. 6. Click and lock the shutter release in for 25 seconds and release it. Anything longer than 25-30 seconds will make the stars look like blobs instead of sharp stars do to the earth turning.
