Total solar eclipse on March 20 equinox

Reprinted from Space Weather News http://spaceweather.com

ARCTIC ECLIPSE: On March 20, the first day of northern spring, Arctic sky watchers could witness something rare and wonderful:  Northern Lights during a total eclipse of the sun.  Earth’s magnetic field is reverberating from a CME strike on March 17 that sparked the strongest geomagnetic storm of the current solar cycle.  Days after the impact, auroras are still dancing around the Arctic Circle.  Those auroras could emerge in “broad daylight” this Friday when the new Moon passes in front of the Arctic sun, producing a total eclipse visible from Svalbard, the Faroe Islands, and many ships at sea.  Visit http://spaceweather.com for a preview and updates during the eclipse.
