The sun has thrown off a huge solar flare in the direction of the earth and that could mean weather permitting, we could see a very bright aurora borealis over the weekend. NASA report states that some flares can cause communication blackouts, but this one is not predicted to cause any problems, just a beautiful sight. The Sunriver Nature Center's Rob Bingham says they are very excited to see that more of these flares are predicted over the next few years because they have solar observatory telescopes. But, Bingham says, our weather forecast isn't too promising for a clear Saturday night to be able to observe the nighttime colors.
