There might be some aurora visibility in the area tonight

Tip of the cap goes to this person on UIUC’s ever-popular subreddit, but if you’re interested in potentially catching some aurora in the night sky, tonight is your night. Remember, Champaign County Forest Preserve District’s Middle Fork River Forest Preserve is Illinois’ only Dark Sky Park, so that would be the place to go if you’re interested in seeing this magic as it happens. While there isn’t an exact time, I would pay attention to news stations or social media to learn the latest as this is not an updating post.
