You Might Be Able To See The Northern Lights In NYC This Weekend

Parts of the US and Canada are in for a treat this weekend as the aurora borealis, more commonly known as the northern lights, may be visible across parts of North America. While the northern lights are usually only visible in the most northern locations on the planet such as Alaska, northern Canada, southern Greenland, Sweden, Finland, northern Norway, and Iceland, a solar flare that erupted on March 20 could increase the reach of the phenomenon. While the flare is not dangerous, it is set to hit the earth's poles on Friday night, which will "supercharge" the northern lights, increasing its reach around the globe. The University of Alaska Fairbanks' Geophysical Institute predicts that the northern lights could be visible on Friday night (3/22) and Saturday morning (3/23) in Canada, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Michigan, Maine, New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire. However, viewing will only be possible under extremely clear and dark skies, so if you live in a city you may want to head to the suburbs for your chance to see the aurora. Friday night will also have a near-full moon, which will make viewing more difficult than usual. If you live in a #lit city or in a state where the northern lights won't be visible this weekend - don't worry because I've got you covered. Hit the lights, cuddle up under a blanket, and watch this video on repeat for 3 or 4 hours! I mean it's practically the same thing....
