Tonight’s the last call for Midwestern residents to catch the Northern Lights.
According to the National Weather Service, a geometric storm expected to bring the Northern Lights further south than normal might be visible Thursday evening. You’re best chance to catch the lights will be closer to the Wisconsin boarder, sometime after 9 pm tonight.
There is a chance that the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) might be visible here tonight and tomorrow night, although cloud cover could be a factor. Better chances to see it will come as you go farther north and away from well-lit urban areas. https://t.co/403O8v2yGw— NWS Chicago (@NWSChicago) December 9, 2020
