I thought this was pretty cool.  NASA is forecasting Aurora's and displaying the results as a time lapse map overlay.  The colored areas represent the aurora forecasts and the dots are user reports with blue and green as sightings and red as no sightings. It's really great to see so many people participating in science and enjoying the night sky!

This video shows the auroral oval, as modeled using OVATION Prime (2013), along with citizen science reports collected by the Aurorasaurus project for the St. Patrick's Day storm over March 17-19, 2015. The red swath indicates a higher probability that an aurora could be seen from that area.
