A Geomagnetic Storm is currently in progress, following several Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) from the Sun over the last few days.

The KP index at the time of this post is between 7 and 8, which means there is a very high chance of seeing the aurora from the UK. has reports of aurora visibility coming from across Europe, including Scotland.

At the moment it’s mostly cloudy in Liverpool, but keep your eyes peeled!
