Photos: Northern Lights Shine in Canada, Michigan

Storified by Accu Weather· Sun, Mar 17 2013 12:05:09

Due to an Earth-Directed coronal mass ejection early Friday morning, northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis were seen in parts of Canada, Alaska and even into Michigan, Saturday night. Below are some captured photos of the event. 
From Facebook fan, Sarah D'Angelo over Paradise, Michigan: "Before the clouds rolled in this morning."

The odds of seeing northern lights on Sunday is favorable for most of New England and upstate New York, these regions can expect mostly clear skies.  The Great Lakes can expect clouds to increase and viewing conditions to deteriorate as the night progresses. Partly cloudy skies will occupy the interior Northwest, according to Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski. If you take photos of the northern lights, please send them to use via Twitter or Facebook for our photo blog story. For more information on northern lights and possible viewing areas, read "Solar Flare to Produce Spectacular Northern Lights."
