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

It’s a rare occasion, although not unheard of, for Massachusetts to bear witness to the Northern Lights, a.k.a. aurora borealis, this far south of the North Pole. However, a heavy-duty solar storm taking place this week will push the visibility of the Northern Lights all the way to The Bay State on Thursday and on Friday night.

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: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Have you witnessed the Northern Lights from Massachusetts before? We’d love to hear from you – and see your images in our comments! Or better yet, cruise over to our Massachusetts Nature Lovers group on Facebook and post your  Northern Lights photos there!
