Did You See The Northern Lights This Week?

It is a very rare occurrence for the aurora borealis to appear in places below the Arctic Circle but scientists said that several parts of the US will get to see them this week.

Following a significant release of plasma and magnetic energy from the Sun's corona, the Space Weather Prediction Center announced a geomagnetic storm watch for this week.
During that time, the prediction center says the northern lights may appear over parts of the contiguous United States. Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, New York, and most of New England all fall within the projected aurora zone.

One time when I was at college in Maine, there was a night fog and a very bright Northern Lights. It was so light out around 10 PM you could read a newspaper.
