Tonight's Sky for March 30: Be Alert for Aurora


A few days ago, the Sun erupted in a big way. Now, the wave of highly charged particles that was blasted into space is set to impact the Earth's upper atmosphere, creating prime conditions for aurora (also known as Northern Lights) for people living at high latitudes. Though there is no way to predict how strong the aurora will be if they do appear, for anyone living at a high latitude who is looking to have a clear sky tonight, keep an eye on the sky above.
