    Welcome to the forum, tell me where your school is and I'll have a look at any cosmic storm buzzing around it!

    Seriously - more detail required - as an amatuer astronomer I have not herad of this one unless you mean 'solar flares, the solar wind, or cornal mass ejections' - all of which you can google.

    YOu'd have to google it to find how far south - I think about 51 degs is the maximum, and then only in a really good show! - again google may be able to help..
