Northern Lights May be Visible in New Hampshire Skies Wednesday, Thursday Night

The northern lights may be possible to see in New Hampshire skies Wednesday and Thursday nights with the right viewing conditions.

The intense aurorae are triggered by a coronal mass ejection, or CME, from the sun, an outburst of charged material that can spark geomagnetic storms when they hit the earth’s magnetic field. The charged particles release light when they hit the atmosphere, and the color of the light depends on which gas particles they collide with.

It’s best to be away from city lights when trying to view the aurora borealis.

Look north late to try to see the display of colorful lights in the sky. In general, the best time to look for the aurora borealis is between 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The northern lights were also visible in February and March.
