Is there a formula to calculate at what latitude you are able to see the aurora, given some value like K-index?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

From the NOAA website on space weather, they have some global maps with lines showing where on earth its most likely to see the aurora, what I'm wondering is how they calculated this.
