Look UP Tonight: You May Catch A Rare Appearance Of ‘Northern Lights!’


According to WXYZ   Meteorologist Chris Edwards, if the sky cooperates tonight and you bundle up, you may see the green glow of ‘Northern Lights!’  What is known as a large Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) on the surface of the sun may be headed our way, and folks in southeast Michigan may be able to see this tonight.

Chris says that in order to see this amazing natural light show, skies have to be mostly clear. While it may be mostly cloudy today, chances are it could clear out enough after midnight to catch a glimpse if you look towards the northern horizon.

Edwards says your best chance of seeing this, is to look in all directions for a green glow, with tints of red, and white also possible. He adds that it’s always best to get to the darkest area you can and give your eyes several minutes to adjust.
