Tonight's Sky for February 28: Be Alert for Aurora

Tonight, NOAA is predicting as high as a 60% chance of aurora (also known as Northern Lights) for people living at high latitudes. Though there is no appreciable solar activity at the moment, the Earth is set to pass through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet, which can result in a display. Needless to say, if you live at a high latitude and the sky is clear, keep an eye on the sky tonight.
