There’s a geomagnetic storm tonight which is generating the aurora much further south than normal. The storm is currently at “level 7”. This means if you live on the yellow line on this map, (this one, for the US), you should be able to see it, cloud cover permitting.
If you live further south, you’ll have to hope the storm hits level 8 or 9 (unless I’ve misunderstood the way that map works).
To see the lights, head somewhere where you can see the northern horizon and look at it sometime around (or before) midnight. Good luck!
