Geomagnetic Storm Watch Issued, Northeast Could Be In For Northern Lights Show

Geomagnetic Storm Watch Issued, Northeast Could Be In For Northern Lights Show

That leads to a forecast of kP 6 for how far south the northern lights might be seen on Sunday night.

Those particles are on their way to Earth due to a coronal mass ejection observed on Friday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said.

Charged particles (coronal mass ejection) from the solar flare will reach the earth Sun.

A CME is a burst of magnetized plasma that interacts with the earth's magnetic field to produce geomagnetic storms and an enhanced aurora around the north and south poles.

The U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center has called for a moderate geomagnetic storm - which is responsible for putting on the colourful display - from July 16 to 17 (Greenwich time).

If the storm is strong enough, Washington State could be in for a show, but KIRO 7 Pinpoint Meteorologist Morgan Palmer cautions we won't know for sure until late Sunday evening. However, there is a chance on Sunday night and early Monday morning of some aurora activity in Southern New England!

The last time Canada saw the northern lights was near the end of May.

If you can find locations without a lot of street light, such as Spanish Banks or the top of Burnaby Mountain, you might get a better view.
