The auroral displays I have observed overe the past two nights (Oct 29-30, 2003) have only been visible from sunset-9:30pm. After that, I find nothing. Have other SDopers observed this? (I am in the Mid-Atlantic area.)
I hypothesize that, later in the night, the earth has turned too far away from the sun, and hence turning me away from the solar winds carryinging the stream of particles? …Maybe some SDopers might know more about this?
