  • Northern Lights may be visible across northern U.S. Saturday

The lights have been seen as far south as New Orleans.

It followed a solar flare on Wednesday.

A solar flare sent out a wave of charged particles, known as a coronal mass ejection. And head as far from the light pollution of cities as you can.

The phenomenon is also known as the aurora borealis.

As this massive cloud of charged particles interacts with the earth's magnetic field, the intensity and range of the aurora will likely increase.

How far south the lights will be visible is still uncertain, but it is possible sky watchers in northern New Jersey and upstate NY could catch a glimpse, said Patrick O'Hara, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's regional office in New Jersey. A Kp index of 4 and you're likely to be able to see it in dark skies (though in places like Toronto and Southern Ontario, it may be a bit more difficult). So, back to the Northern Lights.

While the weather could spoil the show, Bonnie did say much of Scotland will have a clear view of the natural spectacle.

The Met Office's Space account tweeted: "CME forecast to arrive late 23rd March following C5 flare from sunspot AR2736". The strength of a geomagnetic storm is measured on something called the Kp index.

"This will pair with completely clear skies", wrote meteorologist Joe Charlevoix on Twitter.

The aurora borealis should be visible across the northern tier of states, dipping as far as south as Iowa in the middle of the country and Washington and ME on the coasts.
