I wish that I was in the north country tonight.

Northern lights could explode over all of Michigan tonight

I am really close to that line, but it is raining hard.  Hope it lets up a bit tonight!

I got to them once flying into Denver from San Jose. Quite a sight from an airplane

MAJOR SOLAR FLARE: On Sept. 6th at 1202 UT, sunspot AR2673 unleashed a major X9.3-class solar flare--the strongest solar flare in more than a decade. X-rays and UV radiation from the blast ionized the top of Earth's atmosphere, causing a strong shortwave radio blackout over Europe, Africa and the Atlantic Ocean (blackout map). The explosion also likely produced a CME, although coronagraph images have not yet confirmed this possibility. Please stay tuned for updates about this event.

We were camped about 800 feet south of the shore of Lake Superior with absolute zero light pollution so we were in a perfect location...  however, Mother Nature decided it would also be a good night to display her powers with an awesome thunder and lightning display.  Obviously we weren't going to see the northern lights so we went to bed early and cuddles with the dog between us because he didn't like the T&L display going on outside ;) ;) ;)

It was cloudy here too, but they did get some pictures just North of Lansing that night, that are posted online at Spaceweather.com.
