Aurora Possible July 20 and 21

Share Button

Northern Lights Now – There is a slight chance for an aurora display on July 20 and July 21 UTC. The most likely times are in the evening, just after sunset and before moonrise, across the Northern United States. The chances aurora may be visible are higher at this time because a cloud of magnetically charged gas is moving toward Earth after an eruption on the Sun on Sunday. The chances are only slight because the cloud is moving slowly and when it arrives it may not have enough magnetic charge to activate the aurora bands. It will also be hard to see any aurora because the Moon will be full or near-full, which will make the sky fairly bright overnight.

That said – keep your cameras ready because there’s a chance!
