If you're out and about in Metro Vancouver this weekend, you might want to look up.

The northern lights will be in high activity on Friday night, according to the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. That means you may catch a glimpse of the stunning phenomenon.

The best way to see the aurora borealis is to "get out of Vancouver," UBC Professor of Astrophysics Jaymie Matthews told CKNW. "It helps to have a clear northern horizon, you know unobstructed by buildings or trees or mountains.”

The lights have previously been spotted around Vancouver and Burnaby as well as Pitt Meadows.
