If you are lucky, the Northern Lights may be coming to a sky near you this weekend.

At least it might if you live in Canada, parts of Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Michigan, Maine, New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire, according to The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF)’s Geophysical Institute’s aurora forecast.

In fact, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center suggests that the aurora borealis — or Northern Lights — could be visible as far south as Iowa and Colorado.
