Not just Aurora, but all of northern Illinois may be set up to see the Aurora Borealis.

It’s rare, but thanks to a huge blast of particles from the Sun that is currently making it’s way toward us, we may see the beautiful Northern Lights if weather conditions cooperate.

Obviously, the further into the country you are, the better. And the more north you are, the better! I hope we have some people in the NW farm land who might be able to catch some footage of it!
