Northern Lights shimmer in Montana sky

For the second time in several weeks, the Aurora Borealis - better known as the Northern Lights - are making an appearance in some parts of Montana.

We have received reports from people in Lewistown, Saco, Chinook, Havre, Babb, Big Sandy, Cascade, Sun River, Great Falls, and Fairview.

Areas along the Hi-Line seem to be having the easiest time seeing them; there's some cloud cover farther south around and near Great Falls, making it a bit harder to see the lights.

The Northern Lights last dazzled Montana sky-gazers on September 30th (photos).

Here's some photos snapped by KRTV viewers; click here to upload yours to our photo gallery.
