The Northern Lights may be visible from southeast Wisconsin starting Saturday night.

A G2 geomagnetic storm will be in effect starting Saturday night and will then project the famed lights across the night sky.

Most of Wisconsin is in the prime viewing area to see the Aurora, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center.

The Northern Lights are usually only visible in the most northern parts of Canada and Alaska as well as Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Siberia. The lights have been seen as far south as New Orleans.
