We may have a very rare opportunity to see the Northern Lights right here in New Jersey tonight. The northern lights, or Aurora Borealis, is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and can usually only seen in polar regions and on dark, clear nights.

Chances of it being visible in New Jersey are slim, but sightings have been recorded around the country, including in Iowa early this morning. According to AccuWeather.com,

The first half of Tuesday night will be the best time to view the aurora before the aurora activity starts to decrease.

If you're in an area where the clouds are not obstructing your view of the night sky, you may still have to do more than stepping into your back yard to see the aurora.

In the event that we actually are lucky enough to see this in the New Jersey sky tonight, send us your photos! We will put together a gallery of what you send us. It's not every day you can see a natural wonder in the night sky. You can email your submissions to dd@nj1015.com, or send them to us via Facebook or Twitter.

And if it ends up not working out in our favor, just convince yourself that the photo at the top of this article is happening outside your window right now.
