Default Possible Aurora Borealis Sunday

Carrington Event? Bwa hahaha


Aurora Borealis possible Sunday night across northern U.S., Canada

Thanks to a geomagnetic storm from the sun, skywatchers across most of Canada and the northern U.S. should get a special treat Sunday night into Monday morning: A visit from the aurora borealis, aka the Northern Lights.

The sky spectacle should be visible in states such as Montana, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, northern Illinois, Michigan, northern New York State and much of New England, according to NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center.

Folks in cities such as Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo, Syracuse, Albany and Boston all have a fair chance of seeing the aurora.

Sunday night, the aurora borealis should be visible almost as far south as the yellow line on this map. (Photo: NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center)

I loved getting to see the aurora when I was living up north. It's genuinely an unforgettable sight.

I have lots of photos of it my Dad took when he was stationed at Goose Bay, bad thing is they're in black and white. You can still see how incredible it looks.
