There’s a Chance the Hudson Valley Will see the Aurora Borealis

NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center said the Aurora Borealis could be seen Sunday night as far south a New York state. CBS Boston says that a sunspot erupted Thursday which blasted massive amounts of solar particles into space. Normally, the Aurora Borealis can only be seen in the far Northern or Southern latitudes.

Most of the particles missed the earth’s orbit, however the tail end of the solar cloud is expected to come crashing into the atmosphere this evening.

This geomagnetic storm is rated as G2, which is moderately strong. NOAA said the best time to see the northern lights will be between 11 p.m. Sunday and 2 a.m. Monday.

Right now, the forecast for Sunday night for the Hudson Valley calls for clear skies, so there’s a chance we could see this.

To catch the Aurora, you’re going to want stay away from city lights, and look to the Northern horizon.
