The aurora borealis danced across the night sky over the northern United States on Monday night, putting on a spectacular show for those staying up to watch.
People across the Northeast and the northern Plains were graced with mainly clear skies, allowing for breathtaking pictures of the astronomical phenomenon.
However, the Midwest was not as fortunate as severe storms over the region not only caused damage and flooding, but also spread clouds over the region, blocking the northern lights.
The aurora borealis was able to be seen as far south as Virginia and Kansas, much farther south than they are usually able to be observed.
The most dazzling scenes took place farther north, close to the border between the United States and Canada, where the aurora was able to be seen easily with the naked eye.
The aurora is caused when charged particles from the sun hit the Earth, interacting with the atmosphere and producing a rainbow of colors.
Monday night’s light show in particular was caused by a powerful geomagnetic storm that erupted from the sun, similar to the event that occurred back in March.
The Space Weather Prediction Center stated that another solar storm is forecast for Wednesday night into Thursday, likely bringing another light show to portions of North America.
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth – Isaiah 40:26 (KJV).

The Fourth Day: God created the Sun, Moon, Stars
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. – Genesis 1:14-18 (KJV).
