NH1 First Alert Weather: Aurora Sightings In The Night Sky!
NH1 Chief Meteorologist Joe Joyce
It was quite a show last night in the evening sky in case you missed it. You have to be aware of your surroundings, aware of the activity coming off the sun, and many times be in the right place at the right time to capture the ever elusive Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. Ryan Knapp in Berlin, NH said the light was so bright he was even able to capture it on his cell phone! A moderate G2-class geomagnetic storm happened in the upper atmosphere as a solar wind stream gently buffeted the Earth's magnetic field. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras in tonight's sky as well!
