"Aurora Borealis? At this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, localized entirely within your kitchen?"

Sorry, I had to make a Simpsons reference when I saw the opportunity. But you don't have to be Principal Skinner's kitchen to see the Northern Lights tonight - they'll actually be visible over Montana!

The Space Weather Prediction Center has issued a G1 geomagnetic storm alert for January 23rd, meaning the Northern Lights will be making itself visible in parts of the US, possibly including Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Maine.

This is a pretty uncommon occurrence that depends entirely on the weather cooperating, so let us know if you're able to see it tonight! Should be really cool.
