Did You See The Crazy Northern Lights Last Night?

Published March 18, 2013

If you happened to be outside last night and fixed your gaze upward you were likely treated to quite the spectacle, as a particularly impressive display of northern lights was out in full force.
The clear and cold night, combined with the “coronal mass ejection” – a massive burst of solar wind – that occurred on Friday resulted in a spectacular light show throughout much of the far north. NASA reports that the solar winds mixed with Earth’s magnetosphere yesterday, stirring up a solar storm and creating all those nifty colours in the sky.
