A strong solar flare is pushing a geomagnetic storm toward Earth that could bring shimmering lights to the northern skies of Colorado.

Weather forecaster Joe Kunches says the aurora borealis, or Northern Lights, is likely to be seen around midnight Thursday into Friday in Colorado.

Kunches says the best chance to see the lights will be in the mountains or other areas away from light pollution.
