You could see the aurora borealis Sunday night

Look up into the skies Sunday night and you might just get to see the aurora borealis, otherwise known as the Northern Lights.

The farthest south NOAA space weather forecasters expect the lights to be seen is southern Vermont and New Hampshire.

If you are going to try to see the phenomenon that rarely comes this far south, go to a dark area away from ambient light. Experts say the best viewing hours will be from 11 p.m. Sunday to 2 a.m. Monday. The CME spark will likely spark geomagnetic storms and resultant bursts of auroras visible in various locations of the northern latitudes tonight.

Similar to volcanoes here on Earth, when enough energy builds up within a sunspot, it can erupt and launch enormous streams of energized particles into Space.

Another Twitter user, "Isaac JC Diener", captured the northern lights a day earlier in Hancock, located next to Houghton in the Upper Peninsula.

The northern lights reflect off a lake in Bloomfield, Ont., on the night of May 28-29.

The last time Canada had an especially vibrant display of the northern lights was at the end of May. So yes, it does take some strategic planning to see them, but it also takes a good dose of luck. The Northern Lights can appear in any direction, so moving around a bit helps to pinpoint and view the fantastic lights.
