Looking east at dawn on Saturday, skywatchers will have the opportunity to see Jupiter and Venus make a dramatic diagonal alignment in the sky.
By Sunday morning the moon will have sunk closer to the eastern horizon and will appear wedged between Jupiter and Venus. The cosmic trio will form a striking triangle formation.
As an added bonus, there's a chance to see some northern lights Saturday and Sunday evening.
On July 12, a giant sunspot complex on the surface of the sun erupted with an X-class solar flare ten times the size of Earth. The flare unleashed a giant cloud of charged particles, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), directed squarely at Earth.
Space weather forecasters are predicting that the CME will arrive sometime around 5 a.m. Eastern Time on July 14 and produce at least a minor geomagnetic storm which may create colourful auroras in the sky.
The best time to observe auroral activity is after local nightfall until after midnight towards the northern horizon.
