The Northern Lights May Be Visible Over Maryland This Week Due To A Solar Storm
Have you always wanted to see the Northern Lights in person? It’s a bucket list item for many people. You’d normally have to travel far north into Canada, Iceland, or Alaska to see the Aurora Borealis, but the next two nights, you just may be able to spot it from Maryland! That’s right — it’s all due to a current geomagnetic storm, which you can learn more about below. Read on for the details and keep your eyes on the sky.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Keep in mind that while the Northern Lights may be seen from Maryland tonight and tomorrow, it’s not a certainty. For better odds of seeing the light show, head someplace with little light pollution.
