Northern Lights May Create Awesome Sky Show Across Region On Saturday

A large solar outburst Thursday could lead to quite a spectacle over Western Washington.

This weekend could bring sunshine during the day and a gorgeous show on Saturday night.

A large solar outburst Thursday could lead to a sky show over Western Washington. According to KING-TV's Jeff Renner, Northern Lights could be visible across the region.

The X1.4 class flare erupted from the sun's Active Region 1520, which rotated into view last week. The flare created a coronal mass ejection, which is traveling in Earth's direction at more than 850 miles per second.

Saturday's forecast calls for partial clearing by the afternoon, so seeing the Northern Lights in Bonney Lake and Sumner is likely.

Do you have a recommendation for the best place in town to catch this awesome sky show? Tell us in the comments!

I'd be interested to find out if anyone saw them last night and where they were located?
