Chicago, IL – Chicagoans are set for a second consecutive evening of celestial displays as the ongoing geomagnetic storm brings the possibility of auroras to the region again this Mother’s Day.

According to the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center, the series of coronal mass ejections that began affecting Earth on May 11th will continue to influence geomagnetic conditions through May 12th. This rare occurrence is due to unusually intense solar activity, leading to elevated G4 and G5 geomagnetic storm levels.

Residents are encouraged to view the northern lights, which may be visible far south of their typical range. The NOAA continues to monitor the situation closely and provides updates on optimal viewing times and potential disruptions to technology and communication systems.
