Weekend Star-Gazers Treated to Stunning Northern Lights Show
The aurora borealis was visible from parts of the northern U.S., Canada, and Europe.
Residents in the northern U.S., Canada, and certain parts of Europe may have noticed the natural wonder glittering across the skies this weekend.
Saturday star-gazers were treated to the aurora borealis, or Northern Lights, which were caused by the sun spitting out a burst of plasma on May 23. This Coronal Mass Ejection, also known as a CME, put on a cosmic light show worth pointing cameras and smart-phones at the heavens.
Check out the breathtaking photography shared online over the long weekend.
