Northern lights could be visible in Wisconsin

The Aurora Borealis, also called the northern lights, might be visible Wednesday night in Wisconsin, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center.

The best chances of seeing the lights will be in northern Wisconsin, but they may be visible in southern Wisconsin in areas away from city lights. The moon will not illuminate the sky, also making it a little easier to see the northern lights.

While the weather will be chilly with temperatures around freezing by the morning, skies will be clear or partly cloudy, and should allow for good viewing, should the lights be visible.

Look to the north, and you may see curtain-like waves of color on the northern horizon.

At times, the northern lights may appear to shimmer, or even wave like winds blowing on a curtain. They also may vary in intensity, so if they are not visible initially, try again later as they might be visible at a later time.
