Right now, I am viewing the Northern Lights just outside of Chicago. I am still in the fringes of the city lights too. Go take a look outside to the sky. You may get a nice treat Laugh out loud

There must have been increased solar activity as of late. Usually, the solar particles get trapped where the earth's magnetic field is at is strongest--a band near the magnetic poles. When the particles from the sun increase, the aurora will likely expand. Wish we could see them here in Texas.

No crap! This was my first time ever seeing the northern lights, and it was awesome. My buddies and I drove east of East Grand Forks and watched the show. At one point, the lights were pulsating right above us. I got some awesome pictures. The only disappointing thing is that we only saw light green, I was hoping for some purple or red.

I saw the Northern Lights while flying BOS-AMS in September - it was spectacular. I also saw a reasonable show one night in Greenland - they are quite amazing, very ethereal.

Does anybody know if we would be able to see them in Indiana...I am in West Lafayette, maybe 2-3hrs. south of Chicago, so I dont know if it is too far or not.

Thanks for the info, they must be an awsome sight!

Saw them last night here in Minnesota, they were very concentrated, the whole sky was green. A big, concentrated green band formed over my house, it was beautiful! I hope I can see them again tonight!
