"The Space Weather Prediction Center has upgraded a geomagnetic storm watch for September 6 and 7 to a level only occasionally seen, but scientists say it’s nothing to be too alarmed about.

They do recommend looking for an unusual display of the aurora—the northern lights caused by a disturbance of the magnetosphere—in areas of the U.S. not used to seeing them."

They can be amazing, especially if the ground is snow covered. You can read a book by their light.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
