Northern lights may be visible in Michigan tonight

Michigan residents could get a special, atmospheric treat tonight — if weather permits.

The aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights, may be visible around the state, if cloud cover doesn’t block the view.

According to the Detroit Free Press’s Eric D. Lawrence, the lights may be visible in the area until Friday, but projected cloudiness will likely dim their appearance. 

If you can't make it to midnight, check out this video of the lights in northern Michigan:
