“Northern Lights” may be visible in Iowa Sunday night

We don’t get the chance to see them very often, but from time-to-time the “Aurora Borealis”, also known as the “Northern Lights” are visible from Iowa.  That will be the case late Sunday night (after 10 PM) for portions of Iowa, especially the farther north you live.  To catch a glimpse, it’s best to be away from city lights, looking low in the north sky.

The Space Weather Prediction Center has issued a “moderate geomagnetic storm watch” for July 16-17.  Click here to learn more about the Aurora Borealis.
