It is going to be very exciting week for sky-watchers. Aurora Borealis or northern lights 2013 are going to be very lively. Solar flare this year will continue to ignite northern lights

Aurora Borealis or northern lights are going to be watched above the skies in the next few days. The northern lights are going to be visible in many parts of United States during the next few nights as solar flare, the worst this year reached the Earth.

Last year some of the worse solar flares caused massive northern lights in many parts of the world including USA, Canada, much of the Europe and Africa. The intensity of these northern was so high that many a times, flights were diverted to different places and even cancelled in some cases. Though the solar flare this time is not that ferocious and powerful, nonetheless it is still very powerful and the most ferocious since the beginning of the year.

This year too the aurora borealis are going to be very active thanks to the fact that Sun will continue to emit powerful solar flares throughout the world. Experts believe that these solar flares or solar storms can even affect the electricity supply in many parts of the world, though in the worst case scenario only. But there are reports that suggest that this week the aurora borealis might skip the U.S. East Coast altogether, but it will most likely be viewable on the West Coast. The unusual late-night spectacular show is reportedly a result of a solar flare Thursday that will be most visible these days.

A report on AccuWeather while describing the northern lights says, “Viewing conditions will be best in the mid-Atlantic [region], specifically for parts of Pennsylvania and the Delmarva [Peninsula],” the weather site said. “Most of the country will have poor to fair views as a result of cloud cover, with areas further south not experiencing the aurora at all.” It goes on to add, “AA pocket of fair conditions sits over parts of Oregon into Washington and southern Idaho. A swath of partly cloudy conditions will also spread over a section of the Ohio Valley for parts of Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Ohio will experience fair to good viewing conditions. For the rest of the country, conditions will be poor.” So things are looking rather very exciting for sky watchers. They have their hands full right now.
