ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Make sure you're watching the sky this weekend!
The northern lights should be visible over parts of North America on Saturday and Sunday, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Weather permits the lights to be visible in parts of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and many other states, according to a map created by the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Unit.
NOAA stated that the beautiful light show is the result of collision of electrons with the upper currents of the earth's atmosphere. For more information, read the full explanation on the NOAA website.
The best time to see the lights is a few hours before or after midnight with clear, dark skies, CNN reported.
