Northern Lights Now – It has been such a treat attending the Space Weather Workshop in Boulder Colorado. It is exciting to watch the ideas and collaboration arise as this wonderful community of academic, government, commercial, and enthusiast space weather stakeholders collaborate.

As I’ve been talking with people and explaining NLN, I’ve realized that I need to have a simple central place to access some of the more scicom-ready data visualizations, stories, videos, and just plain cool examples as a jumping off point. This blog entry is that.

Generally the more bars, and the higher the bars the more likely it is that aurora will be visible. Each bar represents the time that a solar wind parameter has consecutively exceeded a threshold.
