I wasn’t sure how to title this without sounding crazy… but apparently the Northern Lights are supposed to be visible where they normally aren’t due to solar storms. See pics & a story here:
Usually, the Northern Lights can only be seen by folks who live far to the north. But this week, the Aurora Borealis is making an appearance in lower Canada, some of the United States, Norway and other countries around the globe.
The reason has to do with solar storms. On Sunday, an eruption on the sun’s surface blasted plasma toward the Earth. That plasma is helping to give millions of people a peek at something they’d never seen.
Fortunately for us, these lucky ducks are taking pictures and posting them on Flickr. You can check out several of our absolute favorites here. Enjoy!

Thanks for the info! Last time I saw them where I live was about ten years ago. It was an amazing site.

I would die to see them one day. It’s my dream to take a cruise in the Canadian arctic in order to see them. 🙂

THANK YOU!!!! I never would have known if you didn’t post this. I live in southern Alberta, so I hope it’s visable here. Last time I saw it was about 10 years ago. Yay I’m excited!!

I didn’t see any last night 🙁
I was really looking forward to it. I live in s/w Ontario.
I woke up at 2am & 4am and saw nothing 🙁
Did anyone actually see any?

Cool I have seen them twice before!
I think I may stay up to take a drive a bit north of the city tonight as they are saying that we may be able to see more tonight!
