Northern Lights Over The Northland

September 9, 2011 Updated Oct 16, 2013 at 5:03 PM CDT

Recent solar activity has occurred pushing charged particles toward the Earth which could arrive after sundown this evening to create spectacular shows of the Aurora.

Look to the northern horizon tonight and tomorrow early in the morning for these lights. Its best to get away from city lights.

Timing to see the lights is tricky, the Geophysical Institute in Alaska forecasts the Aurora, they have a short range forecast that is best to watch as its updated each hour.

Sunset is at 7:37pm and Sunrise is 6:32am tomorrow.
