SCIENCE (MARKET NEWS ) Seattle’s run of clear climate in November might just be impeccably coordinated, with the aurora borealis possibly making an appearance in the night sky between Wednesday and Thursday.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a 24-hour watch period will commence at 4 p.m. Wednesday, topping in force in Western Washington between 7 p.m. and , 9 p.m.
Despite what you might have heard or read online, seeing #NorthernLights with naked eye is unlikely tonight in Washington State. Sensitive cameras like this one at https://t.co/NovuwyeTBr or time-lapse could pick up auroral glow, but NO big show expected. #auroraborealis #wawx pic.twitter.com/wD8JCzfBqR
