Chance to see the Northern Lights at OUR LATITUDE!
Photographically, auroras are more common than most of us think in Central Oregon. Visual auroras are fairly unusual. This new year had its first X-Class flare on January 7, 2014 and space weather experts say there is a real possibility that we might be able to see auroras at lower latitudes than normal on January 9 and 10. Unfortunately, Central Oregon has nothing but clouds predicted over the next few days but if we get some breaks in the clouds, especially to the north, it might be worth shorting yourself of some sleep to go outdoors and take a peek.
