You may be able to see the Northern Lights on Wednesday, but don’t get your hopes up

A minor geomagnetic storm will make the northern lights visible in parts of the northern United States and Canada on Wednesday.

The Aurora Borealis will be most visible in northern Canada and parts of the Inland Northwest could see some color, but it will likely be faint. The National Weather Service in Spokane is forecasting clear skies across the region Wednesday night.

Peak viewing times to see the Northern Lights will be during the darkest part of the night: 10 p.m. Wednesday to early Thursday morning.

In order to get the best view, head north and stay away from any unnatural light. If you don’t happen to catch the Northern Lights, at least it will be a great night for star-gazing!
