Possible Northern Lights Saturday night

A strong Geomagnetic storm is expected for Saturday night. A large solar flare that erupted from the sun a few days ago will be the cause. Prospects are that the northern lights become visible Saturday evening into the night. With the intensity and conditions expected. It is possible to see the northern lights overhead as far south as northern Missouri should they materialize, and be viewable on the horizon as far south as Oklahoma.

The Southern Lights won't be left out either, but here's a bit more about this solar flare.

Massive solar flare barreling toward Earth this Halloween.

Cheers.
