Looking for a late night time killer? This is it. You can stream The Northern Lights tonight.

According to Northern Lights Centre, The Northern Lights "are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere.

"The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south."

According to an article on Simplemost.com, this is exactly the time of year when you want to see the Aurora borealis and the best time to watch it is between 9:00PM - 3:00AM CDT when it's darkest out.

You can stream The Northern Lights for free here. The free live stream is courtesy of Explore.com and Polar Bears International. This is what Explore.com has to say about their Northern Lights stream:

"Welcome to nature's most amazing light show. Located at the Churchill Northern Studies Center in Churchill, Manitoba, this live cam is located directly underneath the aurora oval--one of the best places on earth to watch the aurora borealis, the spectacular atmospheric phenomenon better known as the Northern Lights. Late winter and early spring are the best times for the aurora, so be sure to stop in during the months of February and March!"
