How To See the Northern Lights
The SWPC's 3-Day Forecast projects the G1 alert to last from 5am-2pm EST the morning of March 11. Of course, for the vast majority of that span, it will be too bright to see the northern lights anywhere in the contiguous US. However, at the start of the window, you might be able to catch the crackling spectacle.
If you want to maximize your chances of seeing the display, you need to be far from the light pollution of urban centers. An SWPC representative previously told Thrillist, "You need very clear skies, a good view of the northern horizon (no trees, buildings, or hills), and it needs to be dark." The view is necessary because, outside of far-north regions, the lights will largely appear on the northern horizon rather than directly overhead.
We're creeping up on spring, but it's certainly not here yet. So you'll have to do your best to stay warm if you're going out because it's helpful to be outside for an extended period of time. Your eyes need time to adjust to the darkness to get the best look at the display.
If you read here with any frequency, you know the northern lights appear across the northern part of the country from time to time. However, getting the circumstances right is far from a guarantee. (Not to mention that we are currently near solar minimum in the solar cycle, which makes it less likely to be treated to sightings like this.) If the stars are aligning in your area, it's worth stepping out to see the show.
