Last night was a "good" chance to view the Northern Lights in Newport County, according to an Accuwather weather map.
Light cloud cover could have however impeded Rhode Island's view of the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis.
Flares create auroras when the sun's radiation interact with energetic charged particles in the atmosphere. The result is a spectacular display of light and color for areas with clear enough views.
If visible, the colorful display would have been visible from 8 p.m. Saturday until about 3 a.m. on Sunday.
