Aurora Borealis: See The Stunning Northern Lights From Outer Space [VIDEO]
The Aurora Borealis will extend along the East Coast of the U.S. beginning 8 p.m. Saturday evening, April 13.
According to the Accuweather, the Aurora Borealis reached as far as West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and South Jersey.
Accuweather also claims that the flare is best viewed from mid-Atlantic coasts, especially parts of Pennsylvania and the Delmarva. Unfortunately, cloud cover will compromise the ability of some states to see the Aurora Borealis.

The weather forecasting service company advised:
A pocket of fair conditions sits over southeastern Oregon and the southwest corner of Idaho. A swath of partly cloudy conditions will also spread over a section of the Ohio Valley for parts of Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Ohio will experience fair to good viewing conditions. For the rest of the country conditions will be poor.
The Aurora Borealis will extend from 50 miles to as high as 400 miles above the earth's surface. Possessing a wide color range, the northern lights will likely appear pale green and pink during the display.
Perhaps depending on the intensity of the solar flare, the northern lights display can last from 10 minutes to all night.
Despite the difficulties brought by cloudy skies, this awesome footage provided by NASA's satellite cameras more than makes up for the obscuring weather conditions.
Be sure to watch the dazzling Aurora Borealis, created by solar flares that cause magnetic storms that disturb the Earth's atmosphere:
