Northern Lights to Illuminate Skies Tonight in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota, and Canada


Share post:

Green Bay, WI – The northern lights could dazzle residents across Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota tonight, as solar activity reaches a level 2 out of 5 (G2).

According to the US National Weather Service Green Bay, although cloudy skies are anticipated for most areas, there will be some windows of clearing, particularly in east-central Wisconsin. The best viewing opportunities in Wisconsin are projected to be east of the Fox Valley.

In Michigan, residents in the Upper Peninsula and northern parts of the state may have the best chances to catch a glimpse of the aurora borealis. Similarly, Minnesotans in the northern regions are encouraged to look towards the sky for this celestial display.

The increased solar activity responsible for tonight’s aurora is part of a larger geomagnetic storm, offering a rare chance for midwesterners to witness this spectacular natural phenomenon. Experts advise finding a location away from city lights to enhance visibility.

For those hoping to capture the moment, it’s recommended to bring a camera with a high ISO setting and a tripod for long-exposure shots. This event, driven by heightened solar activity, promises a memorable night for stargazers and photography enthusiasts alike.
