The Northern Lights Could Appear Over Toronto This Week And Here's When

If you missed catching the beautiful Northern Lights dance over Toronto last week, you'll have another chance to take in the colourful light show sooner than you think.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a G2 moderate geometric storm has been issued for September 13. Meaning that the Northern Lights could be visible over Ontario if skies are clear late Wednesday evening. 

For those interested in witnessing the lights, you can find full updates and timing available on the Space Weather Prediction Centre's Aurora - 30 Minute Forecast page. 

While the expected time varies between latitudes, the lights typically occur between 10 pm and 4 am local time. 

When viewing the lights, it's best to head away from light pollution and congested city centres. So, head to a dark location this evening and remember to look north!
