According to the Bureau, the display may even be visible across “all of Tasmania” tonight.
Bureau space weather forecaster Dr Jeanne Young said chances of seeing an aurora increase between March and September when the Earth’s magnetic field is best oriented to interact with solar winds.
Dr Young recommends finding a spot with an unobstructed view to the south, like a hill or a beach.
Bright auroras last about three hours, generally between 10pm and 2am, she said.
The natural electric phenomenon results from various interactions in the Earth’s atmosphere.
They appear as a curtain of light or glow and are most often green.
The geomagnetic storm can also impact the operations of communication and GPS satellites, power systems and spacecraft.
