Northern lights display expected this weekend


There is a strong geomagnetic storm watch in effect for today and tomorrow after a significant solar flare and Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun that occurred back on October 28.


While impacts to technology are expected to be normal, there is the potential for aurora borealis to be seen much farther south. Most of Canada along with the far Northeast, to the upper Midwest, and over the state of Washington could be treated to quite a light display.


The best chance to catch the aurora borealis is away from cities where there is little light pollution.


If you snap any photos of the aurora borealis you can share them with us via email at info@wxcentre.ca.
