  • The northern lights fill the sky in this image taken near Dafoe Sask. in May. There's a good chance Canada will be treated to a vibrant northern lights display this weekend

NASA's three-day forecast shows that the Northern Lights will be visible at night in much of B.C., though it gets a bit sketchier in the southwestern section of the province. The higher the number is, the stronger the storm and likely the further south the lights can be seen. Sun spots often help create explosions on the sun which can sometimes send streams of charged particles out into space. When those particles interact with Earth's magnetic field and atmospheric gases, they form the red and green colors of the aurora, according to USA Today.

Space Weather Prediction Centre The Space Weather Prediction Centre says a moderate geomagnetic storm will make auroras visible in North America between July 16 and 17, 2017. They are usually less forecastable than the weather and there is never a guarantee that any one location will have an aurora burst.

KGW chief meteorologist Matt Zaffino said while chances are slim, there is the possibility some in northeast OR may get a glimpse of the Northern Lights. So yes, it does take some strategic planning to see them, but it also takes a good dose of luck. However, if the sky is clouded over - as is now forecast for much of southwestern Ontario - you'll be out of luck. The yellow line is going to be the line at which the light might possibly reach.
