Skies Over West Seattle update: Northern Lights tonight

April 13, 2013 at 6:26 pm | In Skies Over West Seattle, West Seattle news, West Seattle weather | 1 Comment

If there’s a break in the clouds – or if you decide to drive to somewhere you can find one – our Skies Over West Seattle contributor Alice Enevoldsen says the Northern Lights should be out there somewhere:

A big solar wind “gust” just passed over the Earth, so tonight is prime aurora viewing. Check spaceweather and softservenews but it could even be worth driving somewhere out from under these big clouds.

  1. Does not appear likely and not b/c of the cloud deck but b/c the solar wind stream thus far is weak and the CME impact was also weak. However history has shown that as the stream passes earth there could be an uptick in energy and the Aurora “could ” show up after all.
