Northern Lights Coming to New England

Look up at the night sky this weekend for a chance to see the northern lights. This explosion produced what scientists call a "coronal mass ejection (CME)" and it is headed straight for our planet!

So when this energy arrives near earth on Sunday, it could spark a geomagnetic storm and brilliant auroras at far northerly latitudes.

NOAA has predicted a geomagnetic storm of G2 strength, which would be a storm of moderate strength. The phenomenon is created by "collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere", according to the Northern Lights Centre website.

The last time Canada had an especially vibrant display of the northern lights was at the end of May.

Ravens Can Plan Ahead, Similar to Humans and Great Apes
It is well known that ravens are smart, but a new study showed the birds may be more intelligent than we previously thought. Fifteen minutes later, the puzzle came back, and if the raven had chosen the right tool, they could open it.

KGW chief meteorologist Matt Zafino said while chances are slim, there is a possibility some in northeast OR may get a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Variations in the color of the lights are due to the different types of gas particles.

The aurora could be visible as far south as the green or yellow lines on this map.

If the auroral forecast predicts a visible aurora, get away from light pollution in urban areas and away from any bright lights.

In addition, the darker the skies the better for viewing.
