This is where you could catch the Aurora Borealis in BC this weekend

If you missed the impressive Aurora Borealis show earlier this month, you might be in luck. An eerie light show could be in store this weekend in British Columbia.

A geomagnetic storm watch has been issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) by Saturday, October 30th.

You will need to eat some candy and drink some coffee to reach the top of it, which is set to take place between 6 p.m. 2 and 5 on the Saturday before BC.

BC is not the only province that wants a chance to capture the Northern Lights – they are expected to be visible in Alberta. NOAA also predicts that the Northern Lights may be visible as far south as Pennsylvania, to Iowa and Oregon.

A G2, or moderate clock, is in effect on October 31, according to NOAA.

“Solar radiation storm conditions are underway and are expected to last beyond October 29-30, with a chance for further improvement at the S1 (minor) storm level on October 31,” a report from NOAA said.
