Get ready for a spectacular show! Northern Lights expected to dazzle across the US this Saturday night

Witness the breathtaking beauty of the northern lights as an aurora chaser captures a stunning photo from a plane, showcasing the mesmerizing display of colors against the vast wilderness of Alaska.

This weekend, there is an increased chance for the Northern Lights to be visible in the northern U.S. due to another solar storm causing a Level G2 Geomagnetic Storm Watch issued by the Space Weather Prediction Center. The arrival of a coronal mass ejection (CME) from the Sun’s corona is expected to impact Earth on Saturday and Sunday.


The potential for a G2-level storm can lead to disruptions for high-latitude power systems, orbital adjustments for orbiting objects, and interference with high-frequency radio waves.

Additionally, this level of storm can expand the visibility of the Aurora Borealis, commonly known as the Northern Lights, to areas further south in the U.S. than usual.

The aurora forecast from the SWPC indicated the southern extent of the lights stretching from northern Oregon to central Iowa to interior New York.


Experts recommended seeking locations far from city lights to obtain the best view of the Northern Lights.

This event marks the third geomagnetic storm to affect Earth this week, with the Sun’s activity intensifying as it approaches the Solar Maximum of its 11-year solar cycle, which is anticipated to peak sometime next year.
