If you've never seen the Northern Lights before, this is your chance to see 'em without having to go far!

KWQC meteorologist Kevin Phelps says:

Increased solar activity and a new moon will help create Northern Lights as far south as St Louis on Labor Day morning. Best viewing times will be between midnight and 4am. You will want to get away from city lights and the more north you are, the better. We should have clear skies locally and temps in the 60s making this one of the better viewing opportunities as opposed to those cold winter sightings.

Even though he's in the Quad Cities, it appears as though our weather will be clear (as of now) early Monday, so we should also be able to see the aurora borealis in the Cedar Valley pretty well.

This is a nice perk for anyone who isn't planning to travel for Labor Day Weekend... or anyone that is up at midnight on a holiday. Maybe just don't go to bed the night before!
