If you live in the northern part of the lower 48 states, you're in luck tonight as the heavenly northern lights are going to make an appearance!
One of the most beautiful things you can witness in your life is the majesty that are the northern lights. Commonly known as the aurora borealis, this natural scientific phenomena is scientifically explained as caused by the collision of charged particles directed by the Earth’s magnetic field in the upper atmosphere.
The sun has been pretty active of late and sent out coronal mass towards earth. This is all scientific mumbo-jumbo but the important bit here is that this event will likely lead to visible auroras in the lower 48. Get your tripod ready to shoot, or just bask in the afterglow!
