If you’ve yet to see the Northern Lights in person (YouTube doesn’t count), tonight might just be a good time to check them off your bucket list.

Our sun belched the largest solar flare in roughly four years years yesterday – and all that energy is headed our way and expected to light up the atmosphere in dramatic fashion. From IBT:

The Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks is predicting higher than normal auroral activity tonight for a large chunk of North America. Although aurora borealis, or the Northern Lights, is rarely seen below the upper reaches of Upstate New York, the strength of this solar flare could make it visible as far south as Southern Indiana.

Of course, you’ll need a clear sky – which is kind of toss up for tonight across the Northeast; but give it a shot anyways before going to bed this evening by looking towards the Northern horizon. You might just witness one of nature’s more dazzling displays. Check out video of the flare eruption below.
