The mass coronal eruption occurred on the Sun on Sunday is allowing the travelling of plasma towards earth, which can be seen across the skies in Northern America in the form of ripples of bright lights, as told by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
NASA has reported four such mass explosions have taken place and the plasma if hits the earth, will suspend charged solar particles in the North Pole and South Pole. On the earth’s surface, after combining with nitrogen and oxygen, it evolves the luminous band of green and red lights in the sky.
The bright spectrum of lights is likely to be seen in the northern U. S. states including Montana, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Maine on Wednesday night and for some more days, as told by scientists. They are generally seen over Canada and Alaska.
The scientists at the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks have projected that there are less chances of the lights to be shown in the skies of Eastern South Dakota and the Sioux Falls metro area.
Charles Kerton, associate professor of physics and astronomy at Iowa State University said, “You’re not going to be able to go outside and look straight up and see them pulsing overhead, but it would be above the horizon in Dakotas and southern Minnesota".
There needs to be less of moonlight to have a clear view of the band of lights. But the explosion would fade away the moon’s light and would cast darkness, as stated by Howard Mooers, Director of the Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
