Geomagnetic Disturbance Alert

Geomagnetic Disturbance Alert

27th February 2023

British Geological Survey


Last night (26th Feb) the northern lights were seen across much of the UK due to a geomagnetic storm. The storm is continuing and may intensify later today, so further displays of aurora are possible tonight. 

Assuming clear dark skies, there is an increased chance of seeing the aurora tonight (27th Feb). Those in Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland have the best chance if the weather is favourable.
