NOAA: Northern lights could be seen in our region this weekend

NOAA: Northern lights could be seen in our region this weekend”

According to the FOX6 Weather Experts, geomagnetic storms may allow for us to see the light show August 30 through September 1.

However, FOX 8 Meteorologist Jenn Harcher says there are clouds in the forecast for Northeast Ohio Friday evening, which could inhibit our ability to see the lights.

Even better for Northern Lights viewers. skies should remain relatively clear and there is a New Moon Phase, with only 3% of the moon visible during this time. Adding that the widest part of the aurora occurs when the sun is on the opposite side of the earth.

The green is a pretty literal representation of the aurora. People in the white areas should be able to see it too

In short this means the northern lights may be seen at lower latitudes than it normally would.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says northern states like Vermont and NY will be able to see the aurora borealis this weekend.

It's possible you'll be able to see the Northern Lights from Indiana Sunday, but the weather may not cooperate with Hoosiers.
