Look Up! Stunning Northern Lights Visible From Michigan Labor Day Weekend



(WWJ) Keep your eyes on the skies this Labor Day weekend, and you could be in for a spectacular show.

Astronomer Mike Narlock, at the Cranbook Institute of Science, the Northern Lights will be visible from Mackinac City and most places in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Friday night through Monday night.

If weather conditions are just right, he said, some may even catch the show from downstate, including darker placed in metro Detroit.

"They're stunning if you see them, especially if you've never seen one before, or if you're lucky enough to see one that's maybe reddish or even bluish, they're just dazzling to see," Narlock said. "And you can really see some interesting structure, and just the way that they move is really mesmerizing."

1. A few decades ago (or more), I watched the aurora from a bar parking lot in Detroit.

So, it's possible.

These days, for me, the challenge is to stay up that late

2. Saw them for the first time from Mackinac Island

about twenty years ago around this time of year. Incredible! Since then I've just been living between, hope to see them again sometime.
