Northern Lights Heading To West Michigan

See the Northern Lights in Grand Rapids Tonight? Here’s Your Chance!

Hey there, Grand Rapids! Get ready for something pretty cool tonight, March 25. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has let us know about a severe geomagnetic storm happening, and it means the Northern Lights might be visible right here in our area.

This isn’t something we get to see every day. A geomagnetic storm is a big disturbance in the Earth’s magnetic field, but there’s no need to worry. NOAA says there’s nothing we need to do—just an opportunity to possibly see a stunning light show in the sky.

The alert is for a storm that could make the Northern Lights visible as far south as the I-96 area, which includes Lansing and could reach all the way to Grand Rapids.

Clouds might make it a bit hard to see the lights tonight, but there’s still a chance. If you can, find a spot away from city lights and with a clear view of the sky. The further north you can go, the better your chances.

So, keep an eye on the sky tonight and check for updates on the NOAA website. This could be a great opportunity to see something amazing without having to travel very far. Don’t miss out!
