    Default Northern Lights

    I was wondering if the northern lights can be predicted and if so when the next viewing would be. I heard they can be seen from New Hampshire. Is this true? I am dying to see them someday and thought it would be cool to be able to see them from NH!

    Well, good new and bad news...

    Good news, the aurora is a random event, that is unpredictable more than a few days out. There could be a great storm next month, and we would not have any idea about it today.

    The bad news is that it is currently the solar minimum, and statistically, we have to wait a few years for the frequency of solar storms to increase. Sure we could have one next month, but in a few years, that next month will be much more likely.

    I check http://www.spaceweather.com as part of my normal checking in with the world. It has a subscription service as well...

    As for ones I've seen...2001-2005 were the last good years. October 2003 and November 2004 had some great shows!

    In 1998 I watched the Northern lights from my back yard in CT. First time ever seeing them. Last time too I think.
