Excuse my ignorance, but I always thought you could only see the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, in Canada and north of that... Turns out, you could possibly see a bit of it tonight in Colorado!
A rare event is possible for Colorado on Thursday and Friday night due to what the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) calls a “coronal mass ejection and C7 Solar Flare”, which are headed to earth.
Because of that, the SWPC issued a Geomagnetic Storm Watch for Thursday and Friday.
The geomagnetic storm could also allow the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights to be seen in rare places today, tonight and Friday.
The low horizon visibility line is actually south of Colorado and that means the Northern Lights might be able to be spotted here...
