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.

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:

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.
