Northern Lights may be visible in Colorado tonight
DENVER -- A rare solar storm may make the Northern Lights visible as far south as Colorado and New Mexico this week, the University of Colorado Boulder said. Daniel Baker, director of CU-Boulder’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, said a coronal mass ejection tied to a large solar flare began to impact Earth early Thursday morning, hitting the planet’s outer magnetic shield and causing spectacular light displays about midnight tonight and possibly into Friday.
