Most of the time Canadians have to travel very far North for even the slightest chance of spotting the Aurora Borealis in all of its glory. It's almost impossible and very rare to spot this stunning natural light show anywhere in the Southernmost part of Canada, but tomorrow this is going to change!
The Northern Lights will be visible tomorrow night over parts of Canada. You won't want to miss rushing outside of your house to see if you can spot this stunning phenomenon in person, without taking a trip to the Northwest Territories.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there is going to be a moderate geometric storm in effect for tomorrow, May 16th. There will most likely be an Auror Borealis spotting in the areas highlighted on the map below, between the green and yellow lines.
It's not that easy to tell, but after sufficient zooming, we could see that it crosses over Southern BC and Ontario which means Vancouver and Toronto, or areas just outside with less light pollution, will have an excellent chance of Northern Lights spotting!
You can see in this graphic that a bunch of Northern American States and Southern Canadian provinces, including Ontario and BC, are included in the area highlighted by the green and yellow lines. These spots will have the best chance of spotting this magical sight in the sky but you might be able to see them in parts of Alberta and the Prairies as well!
The lines also seem to be passing directly through Eastern Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador especially! Don't forget to take a walk after the sun goes down tomorrow night to see if you can spot them in your area.
