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

The night sky is a magical thing. Here in Virginia, we’re blessed with an abundance of Dark Sky Parks that allow us to enjoy a magnificent array of stars, constellations, and meteor showers. And every once in a while…something truly magical happens. Meteorologists have predicted that it may be possible to see the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, from Virginia tonight. Experiencing this rare and awe-inspiring event from the mid-east is a once-in-a-lifetime event. And while nothing is guaranteed when it comes to solar activity, it may be worth putting on some layers and looking up at the night sky this evening. 

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 ever seen the Northern Lights? Do you think you’ll check outside this evening to see if they’re visible from Virginia? Be sure to tell us all about it!
