ALL Of Minnesota Could Get Quite A Light Show Tonight
Looking for something exciting to watch on television tonight?
How about hiding the remote somewhere until tomorrow afternoon? Because tonight (Friday, October 29th) all of Minnesota could be treated to a spectacular Northern Lights show! If you have lived in North Dakota and have been fortunate and lucky to have seen one of these amazing occurrences, you have never forgotten what the colors are like, how the skies erupted under Mother Nature's paintbrush.
How and why will all of Minnesota be affected?
According to bringmethenews "In what NASA officials have called a "significant solar flare," the sun let off a massive eruption Thursday that will send a huge coronal mass ejection hurtling towards the Earth and result in what is expected to be a phenomenal northern lights experience" I wish I could understand all the technical terms and reasons WHY this will cause a light show, but it is pretty amazing. Something to do with the particles of the sun will reach earth, and that will set off something to behold. It's going to be something you won't want to miss
Explain Northern Lights again
According to loc.gov "The northern lights, one of several astronomical phenomena called polar lights (Aurora Polaris), are shafts or curtains of colored light visible on occasion in the night sky..."
Will the weather cooperate?
bringmethenews reports "...the weather might cooperate with mainly clear skies Friday night into Saturday morning..." However, they go on to say that if it doesn't happen until tomorrow night, then clouds could come in. The most obvious advice I have heard about watching the Northern Lights is to get as far away from the city lights as you can get. Imagine how glorious the colors will be, intertwined with others, and the stars dancing among them. Another gift from above.
