Okay so I lied. This really isn't the northern lights as I am from South West Michigan. But this is the only time I'll be able to see it in my back yard in michigan. Anyway, today and tonight was one of the coldest days in years for south west michigan. The precipitation tonight was not snow tonight, but rather very very very small ice crystals. The result? Lights beaming for a REALLY long time in the sky. Enjoy!
