We could be in for another northern lights show tonight.
SPACE.com is reporting via The Huffington Post that a huge explosion on the sun last week has sent a wave of solar particles headed to Earth, which could create a solar northern lights show tonight.
The website Spaceweather.com, which chronicles solar weather and other celestial events, reported today that the CME should reach Earth Monday and deliver a "glancing blow" to our planet's magnetic field.
The interaction of the charged particles and Earth's upper atmosphere could create dazzling northern lights displays overnight on Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 8 and 9) over the planet's polar regions.
