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

December’s magical celestial events just keep on coming – and after the year we’ve had… we’re excited to end the year on such a high note. In case you haven’t heard, a Christmas star will grace the skies over North Carolina later this month. But before that, tonight through Friday night we have a good chance at seeing the Northern Lights as far south as possibly even North Carolina, thanks to a geomagnetic solar storm taking place.

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:

Have you ever seen the Northern Lights from North Carolina? We’d love to know so leave a comment (or even a photo) if you have!
