A 3 day plot of 5-minute solar X-ray flux values measured on the GOES 8 and 10 satellites.
Proton flux / GOES
Proton flux as measured by GOES 8 satellite.
Electron & proton flux / ACE
ACE EPAM electron and proton flux
Real time solar wind dials / ACE
Real time solar wind dials from ACE spacecraft data. When the hand points to red the conditions are favourable for mid latitude aurora.

Auroral oval model
This plot shows the current extent and position of the auroral oval in the northern hemisphere, extrapolated from measurements taken during the most recent polar pass of the NOAA POES satellite.
Auroral oval model
A real-time view of the auroral oval as inferred from the CARISMA magnetometer array.
Auroral oval model
This plot estimates the visibility of aurora from any northern hemisphere locations assuming optimal observing condition. It is updated every 5 minutes. The color of the plot represents the intensity of the aurora, with increasing trend green-brown-red.
The locations at the outskirts of the oval are most likely to see auroral activity. The plot is accurate, but one should bear in mind that some locations might see more than others due to auroral substorming.

Current Geo-Magnetic Storm Level Based on ACE Real Time Solar Wind Data.
Dst values are extrapolated using most recent solar wind and magnetic field data when data gaps are present.
Low: Dst > -20 nT
Medium: -20 nT > Dst > -50 nT
High: -50 nT > Dst > -100 nT
Extreme: Dst < -100 nT

3 hour Kp index
The current Kp-index. A red bar indicates extremely high auroral activity and values over 6 make aurora sightings from middle to low latitudes possible.
Hourly Dst data (University of Kyoto)
Extreme values of Dst < -100 nT make aurora sighting from mid-latitudes possible.
