The NWS said if you look with your naked eye, you'll see a faint green along the horizon.

The Northern Lights, called aurora boreali s, is an atmospheric phenomenon. It's when energized particles from the Sun hit Earth's upper atmosphere. The planet's magnetic field luckily protects us from it and some of us end up seeing these beautiful lights. Southern Lights form when the planet's magnetic field redirects the particles toward the poles, according to

Johnson Controls stage at Summerfest becoming... a DJ stage

By Jackson Danbeck, March 24, 2023

MILWAUKEE — Say goodbye to the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage at Summerfest.

Some may have wondered why Summerfest did not announce any acts for the well-known stage this year.

Well, now we know it's because the stage is being renamed the 'Sound Waves' stage. Summerfest's website says it's a concept for festivals focusing on dance music.

Milwaukee World Festival, the organizers of the 'world's largest music festival', say the stage will feature large video walls and upgraded sound and light systems, according to our partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal.

The Sound Waves stage will feature "curated theme nights" for hip-hop, reggaeton, pop and throwback jams.

Johnson Controls and Summerfest are in the works of finding new ways to showcase the company's brand during the festival.

Johnson Controls held the stage sponsorship for a number of years. The Johnson Controls World Sound was one of the festival's only covered stages.

Also new this year at Summerfest - the Klement's Sausage & Beer Garden stage was renamed the Johnsonville Summerville.

The festival will be held June 22-24, June 29-July 1 and July 6-8, 2023.
