Northern lights: Auroras expected after 2 huge solar flares erupt – CBC


Look to the skies tonight. We have the weather to see them.

Two powerful blasts from the sun are hurtling towards Earth, and may generate beautiful auroras as far south as Pennsylvania tonight and tomorrow night – along with possible power and communications disruptions. “A G3 (Strong) Geomagnetic Storm Watch has been issued for September 13th due to the combined influence of these two events,” reported the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colo. early Thursday morning. It recommended looking for possible auroras both Thursdayand Friday night. (CBC)

  1. I looked for them but didn’t see them. Anyone actually see them?
