What is the Kp INDEX

The Kp-index is the global geomagnetic activity index that is based on 3-hour measurements from ground-based magnetometers around the world. Kp numbers increase from 0 to 9, and as the numbers increase, it means how strong the interaction is.

After the northern lights interact with the earth, they follow a ring-shaped path, which we call the aurora oval. As the KP number increases, the aurora oval expands, which tells us how large the northern lights affect.

What Kp strength do you need to see the Northern Lights where you are?

The following KP map gives us a very detailed explanation. According to the KP value of that day, it means that you can see the northern lights on that line or in higher regions.

It’s important to note that Northern lights are natural phenomena and even we find the best conditions, we may not see them some nights.  The Kp-index does not definitively predict the strength of the Northern Lights.
