A strong solar flare facing the Earth earlier this week may bring a rare display of aurora borealis, or northern lights, early Thursday night on the North Shore.
Meteorologists said the display could be visible between 7-10 p.m. on Thursday, according to a Facebook post by WCVB-TV. The Northern Lights will look like green waves of light.
"Anyone in the suburbs of Boston, New York City, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., or Philadelphia has a chance at seeing this," said meteorologist Mark Paquette on the Accuweather website.
