From the article:
When the material hits Earth’s magnetic field, it’s likely to cause strong auroras at northern latitudes, including all of Canada and parts of the Upper Midwest. There’s also a fair chance of auroras well south of there — conceivably as far south as Alabama.
Auroras are likely to continue for at least 24 hours after the solar particles arrive, so keep watching throughout the weekend. The combination of a favorable Moon phase and falling on a weekend makes this a particularly propitious opportunity.
Y’all, if your sky is clear tonight, take a look. I’ve seen the aurora in Oregon before, and there have been recorded instances of sightings as far south as Rome. It doesn’t hurt to take a look at the sky.
If you want to know where to look, find the Big Dipper, then look “up” (directly away from the bottom of the bowl) about ten degrees, or the length of the handle. That’s due north - the aurora should be visible, if it’s far enough south to be in your area, around there.
