Okay, I admit, I haven't even looked to see if the following website has been promoted on Universe Today already, but, well... a work associate of mine showed me the following, and I thought I'd send it along as something every Universe Today reader might enjoy.

Auroral Activity Extrapolated from NOAA POES

Updated quite regularly, apparently.

On another note entirely... I wanted to put forth an observation I've made in regards to all the recent solar and aurora activity. Does anyone else find it odd that literally just before Disney put out its animated feature Brother Bear (which features a big part of aurora activity in it) we had all the solar and aurora activity?

Disney Magic, perhaps?

Disney magic exists! :P

But then it hasn't been released in Australia yet, and we got a few Aurora (apparently), but of course it was cloudy on the days we could have gotten a few Aurora Australis!

Now *this* is a very useful webpage... thanks for posting it!

As for Disney LOL This reminds me of when ID4 was released here in the UK in the Summer of '96. It was around the same time (maybe even the same week) that the BBC broke the news that Martian life had been found in a meteorite LOL
