The Space Weather Prediction Center says"Geomagnetic activity is expected to rise on September 27th due to an increasingly disturbed solar wind field associated with effects of a positive polarity coronal hole high speed stream."  Translation: The Northern Lights will be visible in Minnesota tonight and tomorrow.

I've never actually seen the Northern Lights but the pictures and videos I have seen are incredible. As of now the hourly forecast for Rochester calls for clear skies by 10:00PM so maybe tonight's the night I see them! Of course, you'll want to head out of city and away from the lights if you want to catch a glimpse. Good luck!
