Tips for seeing the Northern Lights

lightsEarlier this evening on the 13 Weather Authority Facebook page I gave you the heads up on possibly being able to see the Northern Lights tonight. I’ve seen a few reports from Southern Wisconsin. Before the 10pm newscast, I walked across the streets, allowed my eyes to adjust, and could see some faint green!

In order to see the lights, you must get away from the city lights and look directly north. Thankfully right now the Big Dipper is directly north. Allow your eyes to adjust by closing them completely for a minute or so. Then look north and focus on one spot. You may see some greens and reds if it intensifies at all.

Share your pics on Facebook or email to weather@wrex.com. Good luck! -Eric
