Heads up stargazers, photographers, and anyone who enjoys the outdoors. This evening, the northern lights will be low on the horizon, as far south as southern Iowa. A G2 (Moderate) Geomagnetic Storm Alert was issued as effects from a large coronal hole high speed stream continue. Conditions are expected to reach G2 on September 29th and 30th, before gradually decreasing in intensity to G1 (Minor) storm levels on October 1st.
This should provide the opportunity for a few nights of northern lights photography. Stay tuned to the Iowa Storm Chasing Network for updates!
