Oct. 4 (UPI) -- The Aurora Borealis - better known as the Northern Lights - made an appearance in some parts of Montana and Iowa on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

According to the Space Weather Prediction Center, being able to see the Aurora depends mainly on the degree of disturbance of the earth's magnetic field at the time (aka geomagnetic activity) and the viewer's geographical location.
