Northern Lights may be visible this weekend

Aurora Borealis to Reach New York—Where Can You Watch

This time, the Northern Lights may be seen as far south as central Iowa.

However, some bright spells are expected to emerge and it will be mainly dry overnight - meaning the lights may be visible.

A G2 geomagnetic storm will be in effect starting Saturday night and will then project the famed lights across the night sky.

Gear up for possible Northern Lights this weekend, Michiganders.

The lights of the aurora borealis are caused when electrically-charged particles from the sun slam into oxygen and nitrogen atoms in the Earth's atmosphere.

As is quite common, the flare was followed by a coronal mass ejection (CME) - a blast of charged particles from the sun that travel along the solar wind.

She added that the likelihood of seeing it depends on the weather with chances increased by being in Scotland.

But to see the aurora, the institute stresses that a "clear and dark sky" are needed. "Further north, you're pretty likely to see something".

In the UK, The Met Office's Space account tweeted: "CME forecast to arrive late 23rd March following C5 flare from sunspot AR2736".

The level of geomagnetic storms are measured on a scale called the KP-index, which goes from 0 to 9.

Variable amounts of cloud will build through the day but should break up after dark so there should be good clearer spells developing.

The aurora borealis should be visible across the northern tier of states, dipping as far as south as Iowa in the middle of the country and Washington and ME on the coasts.
