Look up into the skies Sunday night and you might just get to see the aurora borealis, otherwise known as the Northern Lights.

A geomagnetic storm from the sun is expected to make the Northern Lights visible for Washington, Idaho and Montana, according to NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center. The aurora could be visible just about anywhere in MI late tonight, especially in remote locations with clear skies, sometime between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.

As always, the best chance to see the aurora will be outside of the Quad Cities, and away from city lights.

NOAA has issued a geomagnetic storm watch for the event and expects a "moderate" storm. Sun spots often help create explosions on the sun which can sometimes send streams of charged particles out into space. The arriving blast did produce some scattered reports of aurora sightings on Sunday night, particularly in northern regions of the state. Even then, he said it may require long exposure photography for the aurora to show.

Scattered reports of Northern Lights sighting came in on Sunday night, and the show might not be over yet!

You need clear and very dark skies for the best possible viewing. So, if you're on vacation in Northern New England you have a good chance of seeing the Aurora! The Northern Lights can appear in any direction, so moving around a bit helps to pinpoint and view the incredible lights.

It's looking a little less likely to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights late tonight.
