(CNN) – Many Americans and Canadians have a great chance to see the Northern Lights on Friday night and early Saturday morning.
A solar flare that broke out on March 20 will hit Earth on Friday night. Request the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to issue a G2 watch or a temperate Geostorm watch.
The torch will bend around the Earth's natural magnetic field and hit the poles at both ends of the planet, charging the Northern Lights and the Northern Lights drive it deeper.
But do not worry, it is expected that apart from a limited blackout of some radio frequency signals and navigation signals everything will be fine.
The good news is that the solar flare will give many Americans and Canadians a chance a chance to see the Aurora Borealis.
The Aurora forecast from the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks says the Northern Lights could be visible across Canada as well as parts of Minnesota, North Dakot, Montana, Michigan, Maine, New York, Vermont and New Hampshire.
Chicago, Detroit, and parts of states immediately south of these cities could possibly see the Aurora Borealis on the horizon.
But seeing the aurora emphasizes the institute that a "clear and dark sky" is needed. City dwellers and people in areas with strong light have less chance of seeing this phenomenon.
Friday's almost full moon will not help the skyviews either. A bright moon can make the northern lights harder to see.
The Geophysical Institute of the UAF says it should look for the Northern Lights for about three or four hours at midnight.
