If you’ve always wanted to see the aurora borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, 2024 might be your year.

According to Erika Growsee, a public affairs and meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center, auroras are expected to be particularly strong through 2025.

“We are entering a period of expected increased activity on the Sun. Some types of space weather, called coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, can cause the aurora borealis, or northern lights, to reach further south and appear more spectacular,” she said in a statement. “This period of high activity through this year will likely continue into 2025, but the technology does not yet exist to accurately predict when a strong geomagnetic storm will occur.”
