The Northern Lights May Be Visible Over Idaho This Week Due To A Solar Storm

This month is certainly one for the books when it comes to celestial events. In case you hadn’t heard, later this month a once-in-a-lifetime Christmas Star will be visible in the skies above, due to a rare conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn. However, that’s not all the heavens have in store for us this month! Because of a geomagnetic solar storm that will last through Friday night, Idahoans may have a chance to view the Northern Lights. Definitely be sure to get out there tonight and/or tomorrow night to see this spectacular display for yourself.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
