A nature walk might be fun for Americans looking for this Halloween with the aurora borealis setting up to light up the skies over many US states.

Thursday’s large solar flare meant that the stunning celestial view, also known as the Aurora Borealis and generally a northern hemisphere privilege, could be seen further south in the coming days.

The missile in question was described as an “X-class” and was powerful enough to cause a disruption in high-frequency radio power in parts of South America, Washington Post mentioned.

This energy pulse carries what is called a coronal mass ejection (CME) in the clouds. Similar to the solar plasma cluster, the CME is unusually strong in this solar cycle and could cause optical perturbation when it is expected to hit Earth on Saturday.

This weekend, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center released a watch for the G3 or “strong” geomagnetic storm.

The Northern Lights appear in the sky on January 8, 2017, near Mount Ester Dome about 10 miles west of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Northern Lights can be seen as far south as the Halloween holidays.

This can beautify the aurora borealis and make them visible in American cities whose residents usually fly to watch the twinkling phenomenon.

It all depends on the weather, but Aurora’s forecast from the University of Alaska’s Fairbanks Geophysical Institute predicted that the aurora borealis could be seen from the far northeast to the far midwest and over Washington state.

Skies are also expected to be clearer in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and over Wisconsin, as well as the Pacific Northwest.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said conditions expected in Seattle Saturday evening were ideal for good views, while most areas of Montana are also expected to be clear.

In Europe, the aurora borealis can be seen in Norway, Sweden, Finland and as far south as Scotland, Dublin, Ireland and Hamburg in Germany.

Due to the interaction of charged particles from the sun with the Earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere, the northern lights were visible in Minnesota, Alaska and Washington earlier this month.

Those who don’t struggle with light pollution and can find a piece of land with a scenic view of the northern horizon are most likely to have a good view of the sky.
