Remember a few years ago when the northern lights could be seen from the Blue Ridge Parkway? Since they are called the "Northern Lights", I will let you guess which direction to look, should we get our chance!

While the Lower 48 may glimpse some green light, the event is expected to be quite vivid over a majority of Alaska, where the epicenter of the aurora will be on impressive display in a ring atop the planet.

"Scotland is where you're most likely to see it".

"However, the clearest skies are further east in Aberdeenshire, where cloud cover will be minimal".

Typically, people in the mainland USA will have to travel hundreds of miles to Alaska or Canada to catch an aurora.

Also known as the aurora borealis, the natural phenomenon is normally visible over Iceland or north of Norway. By nightfall here, the solar forecast is downgraded to a 5 Kp, which is the measure of magnetic activity ranging from zero to nine - the higher the number, the more likely the lights are visible.

In the UK, The Met Office's Space account tweeted: "CME forecast to arrive late 23rd March following C5 flare from sunspot AR2736".

Clear, dark skies are most favourable, with little or no light pollution, so getting out of the towns and into the countryside is best for viewing - weather permitting, of course.

Variable amounts of cloud will build through the day but should break up after dark so there should be good clearer spells developing.
