Aurora Alert!

Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, Canada

A powerful X5 solar flare occurred yesterday and is sending a major ion blast towards the earth. If you live along the northern tier states and have clear skies tonight, and especially tomorrow night, it would be worth looking for a dark clear northern horizon – and bring your camera!  Keep an eye on the north, generally between 11:00 pm and 1:00 am.  The most activity should occur the night of March 8/9.
