NORTHERN MICHIGAN (WPBN/WGTU)-- Michiganders may want keep their eyes on the sky Sunday night: The Northern lights may be visible in northern Michigan.

The National Weather Service says there were a few aurora sightings Saturday night over Iowa and Minnesota, and it looks even more favorable for activity Sunday night for northern Michigan.

According to NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center, the aurora borealis could be seen late Sunday night going into early Monday morning due to a geomagnetic storm from the sun.

The National Weather Service says the clouds from Sunday morning will gradually disappear throughout the day, giving way to mostly clear skies for Sunday night's aurora show.

The best chance to view the northern lights will be after sunset to 2 a.m., clouds permitting, the National Weather Service says.
