December is turning out to be a big month for astrological activity — We'll see a double star, the best meteor shower of the year, and now we may have a chance to see the northern lights. 

The Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), part of the NOAA, predicted a geomagnetic storm that will pass over Earth between December 9 and 11.

According to the SWPC, the storm is caused by a massive solar flare, or coronal mass ejection (CME), that erupted from the Sun on Monday.

The storm will potentially be powerful enough that viewers in the northern states may be able to see the aurora dance across the sky. 

If it arrives as expected, the lights could reach states including Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine.

If you live in one of these states, even though the aurora may be strong, you'll want to head to a dark place to escape any light pollution. 

To view the lights in the coming nights, you should look as far toward the northern horizon as you can.

If the conditions are right and the storm arrives as forecasted, you might be lucky enough to see the colorful glowing phenomena in the night sky.
