Did You See The Northern Lights Last Night?

If clouds didn't block your view, tell us about your view of the Aurora Borealis.

 

Last night was a "good" chance to view the Northern Lights in Newport County, according to an Accuwather weather map

Light cloud cover could have however impeded Rhode Island's view of the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis.

Flares create auroras when the sun's radiation interact with energetic charged particles in the atmosphere. The result is a spectacular display of light and color for areas with clear enough views.

If visible, the colorful display would have been visible from 8 p.m. Saturday until about 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Tell us: Did you see the Northern Lights last night?

I went out a couple of times to check, but all I could see from LC was a cloud deck aglow with the lights of Fall River.

I checked a few times too and wasn't able to see anything.

Those who think they've seen the light(s) are most often believers in an imaginary divinity, and it's the cloud cover in their heads that enhances, rather than detracts from, the experience. :-)
