    Saw an article on MSN that the northern lights might be visible in Washington State tonight. Anyone with more knowledge or background in this think it might be a possibility?  Might be too cloudy anyway…

      Yes – big solar flare means possibility of aurora seen in PNW.  Best chance to see – away from city, full dark, late at night. Doubtful we’ll be able to see it in West Seattle.

Sorry, comment time is over.
