Michigan 8) could see a colorful light show over the next two days after two minor solar storms flared on Sunday and are shooting tons of plasma directly at Earth.
Scientists said residents of northern regions of Michigan to Maine -- and anywhere farther north around the globe -- may see unusual northern lights. Usually only regions closer to the Arctic can see the aurora of rippling reds and greens, but solar storms pull them south. The federal Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder , Colo., said the plasma will likely arrive late Tuesday or early Wednesday. The storms are not much of a threat to satellites or power grids.
On Aug. 12, the Perseid meteor showers will light up the sky with best viewing after 11 p.m. Some two dozen meteors are expected to streak across the sky every hour.

That would be awesome to see, but I'm too far south. :(
