Aurora Borealis could be seen from Ohio Sunday night

Aurora Borealis could be seen from Ohio Sunday night

The Lights can't usually be viewed this far south but due to a stronger geomagnetic storm that has become a possibility.

This is all made possible by a huge sunspot which erupted on the surface of the sun last Thursday, throwing a enormous cloud of solar particles into space.

It's looking a little less likely to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights late tonight.

Look up at the night sky this weekend for a chance to see the northern lights. According to the SWPC, the best viewing times will be 10 PM- 4 AM away from city lights. That flare released a cloud of solar particles, a process known as a coronal mass ejection. The skyshow will be visible across most of Canada and the northern USA into the early hours of Monday. The Northern Lights/Auroras are possible to see overnight leading into tomorrow morning.

The aurora could be visible as far south as the green or yellow lines on this map.

Are you planning on viewing the Northern Lights Sunday night?

Of course, we'll need clear skies to see the Northern Lights and there could be some low clouds around but skies should cooperate.

There are several factors that will contribute to whether or not you'll be able to see them. For best visibility, move away from city lights, street lights, vehicle headlights, cellphone screens and camera flashes.
