Per the SWPC's 3-Day Forecast, the alert is in effect from 4-7pm EST on November 9 and then again from 10pm-1am the same night. The first span won't do viewers in the U.S. any good, because you need very dark skies to notice any aurora activity. That makes the best time to catch the display 10pm-1am in the areas marked on the map.

Dark skies are a must, so you'll need to be as far as possible from the light pollution of urban centers. An SWPC representative previously told Thrillist, "You need very clear skies, a good view of the northern horizon (no tree, buildings, or hills), and it needs to be dark."

The Northern Lights Will Be Visible Over the U . S . Tonight. Here ' s How to See the Display. You may be able to see the northern lights on the night of Monday, July While a G1 event is considered minor, it does supercharge the aurora to the extent that it can be seen further south than usual.

Unless you're in an arctic country where the aurora is frequently seen, the bit about the northern horizon is important. You'll want to look to that horizon because it's unlikely you'll see the display covering the sky directly above you as you might if you were viewing in Iceland or Alaska.

These alerts happen from time to time (there was a G2 alert just last week), but it's not all that common. Add in the need for the weather to cooperate and that you may need to drive away from your home, and you see that opportunities like this won't come around every day. It's worth taking advantage of it when the chance presents itself in part because we're close to the solar minimum right now, which means it's a little less likely that you'll be able to see the display.

A shallow 5.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's northern island of Hokkaido on Monday, the US Geological Survey said. The moderate quake hit at a depth of eight kilometres (five miles), 107 kilometres northeast of Shibetsu. USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage.
