Northern lights on display this weekend

Look to the skies this weekend and you might see some colors you are not used to seeing in this part of the country. A geomagnetic storm is expected to make the aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights, visible across the country as far south as Chicago and stretch from Washington state through Wisconsin to New York. It is not often Wisconsinites get a chance to see this kind of show in the sky, so David Lenius from the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society says you need to get in the right spot to really enjoy it.

Even though it was expected to be at its strongest on Friday and Saturday night, it may also still be visible on Sunday night as well.
