That puts northern New England in the crosshairs for a potentially colorful display on Sunday and Monday night.

Weather forecasts are also predicting mostly clear skies that night.

Folks in cities such as Seattle and Spokane all have a fair chance of seeing the aurora.

If the sky is clear enough and other factors are in place, there's a chance all of MI could get a view of the Northern Lights.

The farther north in latitude you are, the better the chance of seeing the northern lights. An enormous solar flare (explosion) lasting for more than two hours ejected from the area. Minor radio impacts Asia/Pacific.

Saudi Arabia has demonstrated leadership in fight against terrorism
Qatar also rejects allegations it has supported terror groups. After the meeting, Qatar said a united front is required. All three are considered allies of many Western nations.

The strong solar flare was released early Friday morning. The phenomenon is created by "collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere", according to the Northern Lights Centre website.

The aurora forms when those particles flowing from the sun get caught up in the Earth's magnetic field. Viewing could be good as far south as Pennsylvania and parts of Virginia. The southern lights are known as aurora australis.

In fact, a "Geomagnetic Storm Watch" has been issued for July 16-17.

The aurora borealis should be visible nearly as far south as the yellow line on this map Sunday night.
