The Northern Lights are quite often visible from the northern portion of the state of Michigan. At times, the Northern Lights can be seen across the central and southern portion of the state and even into central Wisconsin and northern Iowa.
The Northern Lights is a common name for Aurora Borealis. The further north one is in Michigan, the better the likelihood of seeing the Northern Lights when the Aurora Borealis is flaring.
Some of the best places to see the northern lights in Michigan include Isle Royal, the Dapple-Gray Bed & Breakfast on the Keweenaw Peninsula in Copper Harbor, and the Lantern Room at the Big Bay Bed & Breakfast in Big Bay.
