All the conditions are right for what might just be a spectacular and beautiful show in the sky Friday night.  Nationalgeographic.com says that the solar winds that are hitting the Northern Hemisphere right now combined with clear cold skies may allow us to see the light show.

The Aurora Borealis (technical name for the northern lights) is often visible in the extreme northern parts of the u.S., as well as in much of Canada.  But the publication says that they are seldom visible this far south.  Most American's go a lifetime without seeing the wonder of nature.

For a chance to catch a glimpse of the lights, you need to be in an area where there is little man-made light.  You'd also need to look toward the north, and of course there can be no cloud cover.
