Northern Lights could be seen in central Illinois this week
A strong geomagnetic storm (G-3) from the sun will result in the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) which will be visible for millions of people Wednesday and Thursday nights. The best viewing in the United States will be in northern areas towards the Canadian border. The “Lights” migrate east to west, so there’s a chance central Illinois could get a glimpse on the horizon. But you’ll have to be in an outlying and dark area away from city lights.
