There are many effects of solar flares, whether it’s on GPS satellites to power grids to cell phone networks, but the biggest question asked by the most people is: “Are we going to be able to see the Northern Lights???”
“What are the chances?”
“Where do I look?”
“When is the best time to see the Northern Lights?”
To these questions there is no easy answer. ——> Here is the official Aurora Forecast for North America. <——
I think the best time to look out for the Aurora Borealis is simply…this evening, after twilight. Get out of the city lights, look up and to the north. By all indications, our sky should remain mostly clear this evening and overnight.
