I've Added a new Page on Aurora (http://tinyurl.com/4dvz3)
in astronomy (http://users.bigpond.net.au/scotsons_shack/Astronomy.htm) - featuring Pics from Frogesque (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=3652)
I also write a short passage on how they are caused, I did it from memory, so I think it will be chock full of BA. I am going to add links to Alert sites shortly.

BUMP!

Waiting for sunspot 720 to re-appear ( :( I see it has, and looks disapointing) but there may be another new one following close behind. With luck I'll have a new camera before it points Earthward so maybe some better pics for you. We don't see a lot of pics of Aurora Australis so hopefully your page will generate some interest. My guess is Taz, NZ South Island, S. Georgia and Falklands/Malvinos would be best placed as you head towards Autumn.

You could maybe relate Kp indices to magnetic lat and come up with some online data for predictions. (note: predictions are notoriously unreliable - which is half the fun!).
