There is a hope that clearer skies overnight will allow viewing of the phenomenon.
The report from Brendan Alexander is below:
The coronal mass ejection associated with a filament eruption on the 24th looks like it will affect Earth late on the 26th or early on the 27th (evening of the 26th or early morning on the 27th EST). This is not expected to be a direct hit, but nonetheless, low-level geomagnetic storming is expected with isolated G1 (Minor) storming possible. Follow www.SpaceW.com,if there is a flashing amber or red light for “Middle Latitudes” the aurora should be visible over Ireland and northern parts of the UK. Also, stay tuned to Spaceweather.com, Softservenews.com/aurora for elevated Kp values and keep an eye out for clear skies. Kp values of 6 or greater should result in aurora displays over Ireland and northern parts of the UK but other factors are also involved.
