Northern Lights Visible in the US

People in the United States may have the rare opportunity to see the aurora on the night of November 9th, as indicated by the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) issuing a G1 (minor) geomagnetic storm warning

The warning was issued because of a coronal hole high-speed stream. The important part for stargazers is that the event increases the area in which the northern lights might be seen. That region will include parts of the northern United States. 

The aurora could reach parts of Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and the very northern tip of Maine. Additionally, you should have a nice view through the vast majority of Canada and Alaska.

I would love to travel to Canada to see this event. Maybe another time.
