CLEVELAND -- A coronal mass ejection, or solar flare, from the surface of the sun is giving northern Ohio a chance to see the "northern lights" Monday evening.

The stream of particles hit earth around 2 p.m. this afternoon and is creating beautiful colors in the sky this evening.

Several reports of the aurora have been received by Channel 3 viewers as a reddish cloud in the northern and western sky.

Clear skies and light winds will continue to offer ideal viewing conditions overnight.
