Aurora Borealis Could Be Visible Early Saturday in Northern United States

The northern United States may have a treat in store for astronomers on Friday night into Saturday morning.

Early Saturday is when the energy from a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) is predicted to reach the Earth's magnetic field, causing a spike in Aurora Borealis activity that will last until late Friday.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks forecast image at the top of the page shows potential locations for aurora activity overhead (solid green) and on the horizon (north of the green line).

Geomagnetic storm watches of levels G1 and G2 were issued by the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) for Friday night and early Saturday.

The Earth is anticipated to experience energy from a July 21st Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) beginning late on Friday and intensifying through early on July 23.

The best viewing circumstances will be in areas with the darkest skies, far from light pollution

however those in latitudes nearer the line or in areas with less darkness may experience problems due to the fading crescent moon.
