If you are like myself and live in a large city in southern Canada, you don’t often get a chance to see the Northern Lights. Well you might be lucky tonight (February 26) as most of Canada and the northern US will be able to be able to view the phenomenon. Apparently a very large solar event that took place on the far side of the sun on February 25 is expected to reach us tonight causing the display. So if you are in an area with clear skies, look out to the northern skies to check out the show.
You can find out more information about Northern Lights and sign up for alerts at the University of Alaska’s Geophysical Institute website.
