  • Finland boasts fantastic northern lights displays. Cleveland's views, while maybe not so breathtaking, still promise to dazzle.
That which is normally the province of our far-north brethren may be showing up along the Lake Erie horizon tonight. That's right: The northern lights (aurora borealis) may be visible from Cleveland.

A solar flare that shot outward into space on Tuesday is arriving at Earth today. The aurora effect will be best viewed this evening.

Snow showers are possible tonight - and the skies will likely remain partly cloudy - which could hamper the sight-seeing. Nevertheless, spots like Edgewater Park, Lakewood Park or Lakefront State Park all seem like choice spots for the show. Tweet photos of the nighttime display @Cleveland_Scene if you'd to share your prizes with the community.
