Northern Lights Viewable Across Parts of Michigan This Weekend
Forget fireworks this holiday weekend, a spectacular, all-natural light show is set to take place Saturday and Sunday evening.
The aurora borealis is coming to a sky near you if you’re in certain parts of Northern Michigan.
That’s according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
The aurora borealis is a common sight in Alaska and close to the poles, but isn’t usually seen in the contiguous United States.
NOAA says this weekend’s northern lights are occurring due to geomagnetic storm activity.
You’ll be able to see it in parts of Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, New York, Vermont, and Maine.
That’s according to an interactive map maintained by the geophysical institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
