Northern Lights Seen Down South

A dazzling display of the Northern Lights amazed and delighted skywatchers across North America from Canada all the way south to Arkansas Monday night, October 24th, painting the sky with striking green and even rare red hues.

The famous phenomenon known scientifically as the Aurora Borealis was touched off by a wave charged particles unleashed by a massive sun storm that took two days to reach Earth, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center operated by the National Weather Service and NOAA.

“These were the most vibrant I’ve ever seen,” Canadian skywatcher Colin Chatfield of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan told SPACE.com in an email. “I was also able to see red with the naked eye, which I’ve never seen before either. Simply put, they were amazing.”

Too bad they didn’t reach a few hundred miles farther south into east Texas. Oh well.  Maybe next time.
