Apparently because of the solar flares people in the Northern US will be able to see some Northern Lights.

This map was on Accuweather...fingers crossed for a clear sky! Of course, it's impossible to nail down exact latitudes and longitudes, but this gives a general idea.....

I'm wondering about the areas marked poor. Why would it be poor there? Light pollution?
