Residents of New England may be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights on Sunday night, though Bostonians might have some clouds deal with, according to the National Weather Service.

The flare released a wave of charged particles, known as a coronal mass ejection.

If those particles arrive and interact with the magnetic field around the Earth and its atmosphere, it will produce an array of colours - possibly green, red and purple - in the northern skies across Canada.

As the sunspot ejects energy just as it's facing earth, it generates a geomagnetic storm.

NOAA has predicted a geomagnetic storm of G2 strength, which would be a storm of moderate strength.

The higher the energy, the more chance to see the northern lights.

If the northern lights do show as far south as Pennsylvania, clear skies will be needed for viewing them.

Sunday night, the aurora borealis should be visible nearly as far south as the yellow line on this map. Variations in the color of the lights are due to the different types of gas particles.

If you can find locations without a lot of street light, such as Spanish Banks or the top of Burnaby Mountain, you might get a better view.
