Aurora Borealis may be visible in New Hampshire on Thursday and Friday

Granite Staters can catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights Thursday night through Friday morning. The National Weather Service has issued a Geomagnetic Storm Watch. Extreme auroras are triggered by a coronal mass ejection, or CME, an explosion from the Sun. A charged object that can trigger geomagnetic storms when it hits the Earth’s magnetic field. Charged particles emit light when they hit the atmosphere, and the color of the light depends on which gas particles they collide with. “So you have to have a very active Sun, a huge bunch of wild solar particles that are heading our way. They have to hit our atmosphere, they have to, they have to be fast enough and hard enough and big enough,” said Jean Jerulskis, executive director of the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. said. clouds. “You’ll see the clouds all move in the same direction,” Jerulskis said. “But if you see something dancing a little bit, if you see it change color, it gets bigger and bigger, and it can be beautiful reds and greens, and then you know it’s the Northern Lights. This number measures the amount of geomagnetic activity, or disturbance in the Earth’s magnetic field. The more numbers , a geomagnetic storm and the possibility of low-latitude aurora will remain strong.The KP index is forecast to reach 7 Thursday night.>> Download the free WMUR app for on-the-go updates: Apple | Google Play<இது ஒரு அற்புதமான நிகழ்வாகும், இது அடிக்கடி வரும். அது நடக்கும்போது, ​​​​அதைச் சரிபார்ப்பது மதிப்புக்குரியது.

Granite Staters can catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights Thursday night through Friday morning.

National Weather Service Geomagnetic storm watch released.

Intense auroras are triggered by coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, from the Sun, bursts of charged material that can trigger geomagnetic storms when they strike Earth’s magnetic field. Charged particles emit light when they hit the atmosphere, and the color of the light depends on which gas particles they collide with.

“So you have to have a very active Sun, a huge bunch of wild solar particles headed our way. They have to hit our atmosphere, and they have to, they have to be fast enough and hard enough and big enough,” said Jean Jerulskis, executive director of the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. .

Jerulskis asked to look north in the sky through the clouds.

“You’ll see that the clouds are all moving in the same direction,” Jerulskis said. “But if you see something dancing around a little bit, if you see it change color, it could be bigger and bigger, it could be beautiful reds and greens, and you know it’s the Northern Lights.”

One thing that helps determine the potential for aurora activity is the KP index. This number measures geomagnetic activity or the level of disturbance in the Earth’s magnetic field. The higher the number, the stronger the possibility of geomagnetic storms and aurora visible at lower latitudes. KP Index is predicted to touch 7 on Thursday night.

It’s an exciting event that comes around often.

When it does, it’s worth checking out.

“When you see the whole sky changing colors and dancing in front of you, it’s breathtaking,” Jerulskis said. “Look with wonder and realize that life is so special. And being here on earth is a miracle.”

Skies will remain clear in many areas throughout the night.

Generally, the best time to see the Aurora Borealis is between 10pm and 2am, away from city lights.
