Where to see Northern Lights tonight? What time does it start?

Northern lights can be viewed by millions in US, Canada, and the UK this weekend.

What causes northern lights? Are they harmful?

On March 20, a solar flare erupted which is scheduled to hit Earth this Friday night. In light of this,  the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued an alert to be on a lookout for a geostorm of moderate intensity (a.k.a G2).

This solar flare will end up supercharging the northern lights, pushing it deeper and making it visible for millions in the US, UK, and Canada.

Northern lights start time

Fret not though, apart from an extremely limited blackout of high-frequency radio signals and disrupted navigational signals, the northern lights are totally safe and do not harm you or your electronics in any way.

Where to see northern lights in the US, UK, and Canada? Can I watch them with your naked eyes?

According to the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the northern lights will be visible to the naked eyes to a number of regions in Canada, in addition to New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, Maine, Michigan Minnesota, North Dakota, and Montana.
Other parts of the US, including Chicago and Detroit, might not be able to watch northern lights in its full glory since they will only be seeing the horizon.
Where to watch northern lights
In the UK, you could see the northern lights if you live in the Scottish Highlands, Dundee or Aberdeen. The northern lights may or may not be visible in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
You can see the northern lights from the naked eye, provided that there the sky is clear and free of light pollution. In other words, if you live in the city and want to watch northern lights, you should seriously consider going to some place where there isn’t a lot of light.

What time do the northern lights start?

The northern lights don’t have a “start time” per se, they will be visible as soon as the sun sets down and the sky is dark. However, experts recommend that the northern lights are seen best when it’s 3-4 hours before midnight.
