We could be in for another northern lights show tonight.
SPACE.com is reporting via The Huffington Post that a huge explosion on the sun last week has sent a wave of solar particles headed to Earth, which created a solar northern lights show late last night and early this morning and could happen again tonight.
The website Spaceweather.com, which chronicles solar weather and other celestial events, reported that the CME reached Earth Monday and deliver a "glancing blow" to our planet's magnetic field.
The interaction of the charged particles and Earth's upper atmosphere could create dazzling northern lights displays overnight on Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 8 and 9) over the Earth's northern latitudes and polar regions.
