It should be a spectacular Northern Lights show as a huge explosion on the sun’s surface is sending a storm cloud of material and debris our way.
Scott Young of the Manitoba Museum says the amount of material will mean a much better show than past events.
He tells 680 CJOB explosions on the sun are nothing new.
“One of these every week or so but most of the time misses our planet and has no effect,” says Young. “This one happened to occur right when the active region of the sun was aimed right at us so We’re sort of getting blasted right in the face with all this material and its really going to energize the atmosphere and give us those northern lights.”
Young hopes it’s a clear sky so people can get a good view of Aurora Borealis.
