The Northern Lights Give Another Opportunity to Certain Areas of the U.S.

If you happened to miss the breathtaking display of the Northern Lights that lit up the skies as far south as Florida over the weekend, there’s a glimmer of hope for you.

The extraordinary Category 5 geomagnetic storm that caused the captivating phenomenon on Friday and Saturday is still ongoing today, and it is expected to persist for a few more days.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that the upcoming storm will bring about another round of power outages for certain areas in the United States and most of Canada.

The organization provided a prediction for the intensity and location of the aurora borealis tonight and tomorrow night over North America. They shared this information alongside a map.

People Living in 13 States Will Have An Opportunity To Catch Another Glimpse Of The Northern Lights

Unfortunately, this show will not cover as much of the country as it did over the weekend. However, if you reside in Alaska, Idaho, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, or Washington, you might still have the chance to witness the magnificent Northern Lights until tomorrow night, depending on the weather conditions.

If the conditions are right and the aurora is bright, it is possible for locations as far as 600 miles away from the lucky states to catch a glimpse.

To increase your chances of witnessing the awe-inspiring cosmic phenomenon, you have the option to download a Northern Lights tracking app on your smartphone. Additionally, it is crucial to escape the bright city lights and venture into a peaceful rural area for an optimal viewing experience.

If you missed the chance to witness the mesmerizing purple, pink, and green lights in the southern sky last week, fear not! There will be more opportunities in the months ahead. According to NOAA, we can expect more intense geomagnetic storms throughout the rest of the year. So, keep your eyes peeled for the breathtaking display of lights to grace the night sky once again.
