You MIGHT be able to see them down here, but you'll almost definitely be able them up north.

Just to add a little spice to your Labor Day weekend (as if going up north isn't beautiful enough), you may be able to spot the Northern Lights in Michigan.

According to, the Norhtern Lights occur "when charged particles from the sun strike atoms in Earth's atmosphere, they cause electrons in the atoms to move to a higher-energy state. When the electrons drop back to a lower energy state, they release a photon: light."

The lights are likely to appear late tomorrow night or early Sunday morning.
