Northern Lights Could Be Visible In Southern Canada

If you look north overnight, you could catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights over West Michigan.

Across the upper midwest, people could soon see the Auroa Borealis - which is more commonly known as the Northern Lights. The higher the number is, the stronger the storm and likely the further south the lights can be seen.

These particles are expected to reach Earth Sunday night and early Monday, creating the Northern Lights. Get to a dark area away from light pollution with a clear view of the northern sky, around or shortly after midnight.

A geomagnetic storm watch has been issued for July 16th and 17th from the Space Weather Prediction Center.

The sunspot has released a stream of particles through a coronal mass ejection.




When the sun has a coronal mass ejection, it can send a large wave of particles or electrons to the Earth's magnetic field. At about 10am Eastern Standard Time Sunday, the National Weather Service announced on Twitter that "Geomagnetic storm conditions" had begun.

"The better viewing area is going to be over northern New England, like New Hampshire, northern Vermont, Maine, that whole area", Doody said.

So how can you see the lights?

How can you see them best?

The last time Canada saw the northern lights was near the end of May. The Northern Lights can appear in any direction, so moving around a bit helps to pinpoint and view the wonderful lights.
