Aurora Expected But Hidden By Storm

aurora

Would you rather have snow or a show?  Tonight, that might be a hard question to answer, but this area of northwest Wyoming will be giving up what might be an impressive display of the Aurora Borealis due to the current winter storm.  Forecasters at NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center are expecting strong geomagnetic storm conditions to occur on through tonight. The source of this pulse to the geomagnetic field is an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection, a burst of charged particles and magnetic field from the sun. Besides putting on an aerial display, such activity can disrupt power grids, interfere with high-frequency airline and military communications, disrupt Global Positioning System signals, interrupt civilian communications, and blanket the Earth’s upper atmosphere with hazardous radiation.
