If you want to see a magical wonder in the night sky, this is your chance.

Many Montanans were able to watch the beauty of the Northern Lights a few months ago. The nights were clear, the light pollution was low, and the visibility of the aurora borealis was intense.

The northern lights were seen all over America during that time in a rare occurrence.

Montanans are spoiled when it comes to seeing the Northern Lights. Due to our proximity to the North Pole, we can see this unique scenario more often than in other states.

Starting tonight, July 2nd, you will see the Northern Lights in the night sky, but Wednesday, July 3rd, and Thursday, July 4th, will have the strongest showings.

The best time to see the Northern Lights will be between 10 PM and 3 AM. That's peak darkness hours.

You will also need to get out of the cities. Avoiding light pollution from houses or street lamps helps the visibility.

It might be a while until we see the Northern Lights again, so don't miss out.
