  • Northern lights sighting possible in Michiana on Saturday

People in Ireland may get a chance to see the Northern Lights this weekend. A few days later, another sunspot appeared that eventually produced a solar flare.

Things got more active with the sun this week as it produced a solar flare and coronal mass ejection that will affect parts of earth this weekend.

The forecast for Glasgow and Edinburgh doesn't bode well for those keen to see the lights, although cloud could break long enough to catch a glimpse.

Known as the aurora borealis, the phenomenon is usually best viewed in the north of Norway.

Clearing skies and a moderate geomagnetic storm means MI may have a look at the Northern Lights this weekend.

"Scotland is where you're most likely to see it". As a result, the northern lights will be supercharged and cause it to go deeper.

The Northern Lights, according to Service Aurora, are "an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen". The lights will be visible along and north of the state border between IN and MI.

Bonnie Diamond, meteorologist at the Met Office, said: "A Coronal Mass Ejection has happened and the effects of that are expected to arrive later tomorrow evening". A flat, open area with nothing obstructing your view to the north is ideal. This is thanks to what's called a geomagnetic storm.

The NOAA predicts the phenomenon, also known as the aurora borealis, could illuminate the skies above Washington state, NY and Wisconsin over the weekend.

In addition to finding dark skies away from the glare of city lights, observers will also need a little luck from Mother Nature, with clear skies needed.
