Northern Lights Alert!

Northern Lights as seen near Lebanon in early 2006

Late tonight and early Wednesday, local sky watchers could see a display of the northern lights visible in Indiana.

According to CNN.com, a huge solar flare is headed toward earth.  These flares are the cause of the shimmering night lights seen over the poles.

To see the northern lights, you must be in a dark area with an unobstructed view of the northern horizon.

We have only seen the lights in Indiana on a few occasions, most recently four years ago, on very cold mornings in winter.
