Rumblings of a G2

Which is a moderately strong geomagnetic storm. The translation is really wonderful auroras. But if you are more into sometimes overly-enthusiastic/optimistic predictions from the Space Weather Prediction Centre down in Colorado, we had hopes of a Kp6 tonight. We didn't reach Kp6, we spent the night around Kp2, which, as you can tell, was awful. 

(The SWPC is actually awesome - just sometimes a little exciteable, and if you see on my phone while we're on tour, it's usually somewhere down a rabbit hole of charts and data on their site)
