Residents across the United States, as far south as Kansas, were treated to a dazzling display by the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights.
Triggering the astronomical show Friday night was a geomagnetic storm that was ranked as strong (G3, on a scale of 1 to 5) by the National Weather Service's Space Weather Prediction Center.
The intensity of the storm has since weakened and lessened the opportunity for others to view the Northern Lights Saturday night, according to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist and Astronomy Blogger Mark Paquette.
"We are near the peak of the solar cycle, meaning sunspot activity will continue to be active with an increased chance of geomagnetic storms and opportunities to view the Northern Lights," Paquette continued.
