On April 11 at 8:30 UTC, an M6 class solar flare occurred on the Sun.  It produced a CME that is projected to reach the Earth on April 13th.  It will cause a geomagnetic storm and aurora should be visible at lower latitudes.  The best way to monitor the location of aurora is with the realtime NOAA Aurora Map.  You can get precise weather predictions for your location with the ClearDarkSky Astronomy forecast.  Seeing the aurora can be a life changing experience, good luck!
