I don't like to share my secrets too much, but....Tonight (Friday) Saturday and Sunday nights are supposed to be Active nights for Northern Lights. Bring your tripod and a warm jacket!

Is there much for viewing in the Duluth area, or do I need to get a few miles out?

Stupid clouds are wrecking my astrophotography again.

The sun is coming out here in Superior, so there is hope yet Shawn.

For years I always had this idea that If I were on the marketing team for Duluth, I would promote the town with the slogan "Stick it where the sun don't shine. Visit Duluth!"

Oh man, lets hope the weather is nice to us. It's sad but I've only seen the northern lights once, in 18 years in Minnesota, (15 or so that I can remember ha).

How often does this happen? I'm from Texas so I don't know much about it...

I dont think it happens often. And most of the time it happens, you cant see it due to clouds. Ive seen them up here twice, and it is a wonderful sight. I want to travel to Alaska one day to see it. From the photos, they are a million times better, and happen more often.

They are caused by solar winds.
