The Latest European Magnetometer Readings in the Northern Hemisphere.

Below are several magnetometers that are located in Norway, Denmark and Finland and are ranked according to their latitude. When a geomagnetic storm starts the most northern magnetometers will respond; when the geomagnetic storm strengthens the lower magnetometers will respond as well. Once the stations Dombås (DOB) and Solund (SOL) also react, as the magnetometer also drops, then in the European Middle Latitudes there is a chance that you'll see the aurora low in the northern horizon.
