More sky watching news: Aurora tonight?

Conditions could be favorable
By Will Collette

Accuweather is forecasting a "good" chance of a viewing of the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) over our area tonight due to recent solar activity.

See their map to see the areas they predict will get the best views.

Plus, the National Weather Service is forecasting "mostly clear" over Charlestown tonight, even though the conditions, as I write this, are mostly cloudy.

The Northern Lights are wonderful to see and don't happen this far south that often. I have only seen them once in Charlestown in the past ten years.
