The northern lights occur when electrically charged particles from the sun collide with gases in Earth’s atmosphere, creating bursts of light.

NOAA NWS Space Weather Prediction Center says the extreme geomagnetic storm will persist through at least Sunday so there is a good chance you will be able to see the Norther Lights again tonight May 11 from Park City Utah.
