The possibility of seeing the Aurora Borealis tonight is there. http://www.spaceweather.com is a good link as it hhas most of the good data to determine the sun’s activity. One of the stats is the K number if its over 7 then northern U.S. has a good chance of seeing.
There was a significant solar flare that could give an awesome light display tonight, it was out last night, of course it was cloudy here but if you have a clear night and live in the upper latitudes, you may see some pretty colors in the night sky!!
