another bright aurora due this weekend, just about as strong as the one back in may. I was luckily able to view the last one here in the midwest, it was so bright that it outshone the city lights which normally down out any night sky.

I'm going to give it a shot. I don't have a job that I need to get up for in the morning, so I'll probably see if I can get a look at it. But, ultimately, there's a lot of light pollution around here and it never actually gets dark.
