Now that the skies are dark again, the aurora borealis has a chance to give a show. Overnight Sunday to Monday, many in Southcentral Alaska saw the northern lights.

Did you miss the show? You'll get another chance to see the aurora Monday night as long as the skies remain clear.

"Auroral activity will be high," according to the Monday night aurora forecast from the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Geophysical Institute. "Weather permitting, highly active auroral displays will be visible overhead from Barrow to Bethel, Dillingham and Ketchikan, and visible low on the horizon from King Salmon."
