Incredible photos show northern lights dancing across much of Canada


Sky-gazers and shutterbugs across much of Canada were treated to a spectacular display of northern lights Thursday night and into Friday morning.

The stunning light display was a result of an Earth-facing coronal hole on the sun and solar winds, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The NOAA issued a geomagnetic storm watch early this week as result of the "hole" on the sun and a "coronal mass ejection" on Sunday.

The result of the sun's activity produced auroras over northern skies, where a display of green, purple and red danced over much of Canada.

If you happened to miss Thursday's light show, there's still a chance for another show overnight Friday, according to NOAA.
