Aurora Borealis to Reach New York—Where Can You Watch

You may have a chance to see the Northern Lights from IN this weekend.

Thanks to a solar storm this week, the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) could be visible as far south as Cleveland this weekend!

It followed a solar flare on Wednesday.

For Pittsburgh to see the Northern Lights, we need to see a 7 or 8 register on this index.

However, despite milder conditions on Saturday, Sunday is likely to see a return to more wintry weather.

The particles colliding on the Earth's magnetic field could turn up the range and intensity of the Aurora. The chances of observing the Northern Lights diminish as you head south because lights from Indianapolis make it more hard to see.

The National Weather Service Space Weather Prediction Center has a "moderate geomagnetic storm watch" in effect for March 23 and says the Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, could be visible as far south as southern IL and Indiana.

The light of the moon could making viewing hard, however, as the moon was full on Wednesday and will rise in the eastern sky at about 10:50 p.m. Saturday night. With this particular geomagnetic storm expected to be "Moderate" in strength, the likelihood of any significant and potentially harmful impacts is low.

Michiganders could be in for a treat this weekend.

It's predicted that the lights will show its stunning array of lights across the north and north-east of Scotland on this evening around 9pm, as a solar storm makes it's way to earth. However, the following CME seems Earth-directed and ready to impact us sometimes on March 23.

"As a result, aurora may be visible in Scotland where cloud breaks".
