SOUTH BEND, Ind.–If you’ve never seen the northern lights, or the aurora borealis, conditions may be right to see the phenomenon Saturday evening and Saturday night in the north part of the state.

Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration believe increased sunspot activity Wednesday may make it possible to see the aurora.

The best chance to see the lights will be near the Michigan Indiana border. But, the lights may be visible as far south as central Indiana, according to some maps.

The best way to see the northern lights is to find an area without li9ght pollution. In other words, find an area where city lights or moon light won’t drown out the aurora.
