Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? If you live in northern U.S. states near the Canadian border then the night skies could play host to the sky phenomenon—also called the aurora borealis—at around midnight local time on Monday and later in the week, too.
In the wake of the Sun “waking-up” there have been reports of strong displays of aurora in the night sky in recent weeks, but so far they’ve been confined to the Arctic Circle.
However, the latest predictions from the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (NOAA SWPC) suggest high activity is coming this week that could mean aurora borealis being visible as far south as Oregon.
Whether anyone sees them depends not only on “space weather,” but also on local weather since heavy cloud will preclude any sightings.
