At least one Michigan resident was able to view the aurora borealis in all its glory.

NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center issued a geomagnetic storm warning over the weekend with a G2 (moderate) classification, making auroras visible in northern parts of the United States this morning. That included Michigan, though there have been no reports (yet) of anyone seeing the auroras as far south as Detroit.

Another Twitter user, "Isaac JC Diener," captured the northern lights a day earlier in Hancock, located next to Houghton in the Upper Peninsula.
