First Northern Lights Display of 2014 for US Peaks Thursday

The first northern lights display of 2014 is on tap for the United States Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

A strong, Earth-facing coronal mass ejection, or CME, occurred Tuesday which set the stage for a bright display across the northern half of the U.S., according to Expert Meteorologist Mark Paquette.

The more directly a flare faces the Earth, the better the chances are for a strong aurora to be visible.
