The Northern Lights will be active through Saturday, with the University of Alaska Fairbank's Geophysical Institute forecasting a "5" through the first part of the weekend.

However, there will be some clouds blocking much of the display on Wednesday night.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy but clearing will take place overnight into Friday, so viewing during that period could be productive.

Friday looks like it will be the best viewing opportunity with clear skies on both the day before and after.

Happy viewing and dress warm!
