Aurora borealis may be visible in Michigan tonight, tomorrow

Feb 18, 2011

Michiganders might get a glimpse of nature's greatest light show tonight and tomorrow.   Recent solar flares are expected to create a spectacular aurora borealis

The weather forecast tonight calls for potentially ideal conditions with clear skies (though with temperatures falling through the 20's you might want to bundle up).  There's a chance for more clouds Saturday night ( It should also be colder).   Don't miss your chance to see the "Dance of the Spirits". 

ABC News posted a very informative story explaining the science behind the show.  http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/slideshow/solar-flare-creates-stunning-light-show-11325985
