Links to Track the Aurora Borealis
Rain and snow may not be ideal conditions for spotting the Northern Lights, which are forecast to appear tonight. Use these six links to stay on the heels of the magnetic light show anyway.
While the weather system unloading rain and snow on Washington may not be ideal conditions for spotting the Northern Lights, which are forecast to appear tonight, you may want to stay on the heels of the magnetic light show anyway. We've compiled a few resources to help you do just that.
Where can you spot the Aurora? If the clouds part, it's anyone's guess who will get eyes on the phenomena. The Northern Lights have been spotted everywhere from the top of Mount Pilchuck (as captured in the phenomenal shot by trip reporter and photographer Alex Pollitt in 2012) to earlier this year in Vantage along the Columbia River.
If you do catch the Aurora, make sure to let us know in a trip report, in the comments below or on one of our social channels.
