Tonight's Sky for January 18: Be Alert for Aurora

The Sun let off a coronal mass ejection (CME) on January 15 and that CME is expected to impact Earth in the coming hours. While the hit will not be direct, NOAA is still saying that there is up to a 45% chance for geomagnetic activity today and tomorrow for North-dwelling sky watchers. Bottom line: if you live in Northerly latitudes, keep an eye out for the Northern Lights tonight and possibly tomorrow night, too.
