As the always useful WGN Weather Center Blog notes, Chicago witnessed an episode of the aurora borealis last night. They've posted two gorgeous photos of the northern lights over Woodstock (1 | 2), and, according to meteorologist Steve Kahn, "it is possible the aurora may be visible again tonight, especially in Canada, Alaska and areas north of Chicago." Keep your eyes peeled.
