‘Northern Lights’ May Be Visible in Wyoming Wednesday Evening
One of the most beautiful natural displays is Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights.
The official National Weather Service in Riverton YouTube channel posted the following informative video, along with a caption that read:
A video with some details about the possible northern lights display in Wyoming on the night of March 30-31st. Includes how to view it.
According to the video, now that it's getting darker later, the most ideal time to witness the phenomenon will be between the hours of 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm tonight (Wednesday, March 30th, 2022), and also after midnight.
Here are some tips to best view the aurora:
- Get to as dark a location as possible
- Look to the north
- Allow time for eyes to adjust to the darkness
- For photography, a longer exposure usually works better to capture colors
- Use a tripod if possible
- Remember, space weather is very fickle
For those that don't know, an aurora is defined as:
a natural electrical phenomenon characterized by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky, usually near the northern or southern magnetic pole.
