Britons will not need to drive up to the Arctic Circle, to see the Northern Lights this week, as they can see from Britain.
A coronal mass ejection (releases plasma and associated magnetic fields from the Sun) is expected on Earth this evening (11 October), potentially leading to “minor to moderate” geomagnetic storms.
Some lucky Britons noticed the northern lights on Monday October 11, 2021 as geomagnetic storms shone light on the skies.
How soon will the boreal aurora be visible?
In many areas,”it is still difficult to see because of the thick clouds, but there are a few locations with a” possibility.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center said Saturday’s geomagnetic storm was “moderate” and described it as a “G2” event on the scale of 1-5.

There’s a chance to see the aurora tonight, more so in the north. Lots of solar activity and a release of plasma from the sun is set to collide with earth’s atmosphere amounting in this beautiful light display. Spoiler – could be cloudy but fingers crossed🤞🏽 pic.twitter.com/jLn5mbNefu
