Aurora Borealis


On Saturday (June 16), rare beautiful blue and purple Northern Lights appeared in the skies and were visible across Canada and the northern U.S. The combination of two solar flares striking the Earth were powerful enough to produce a geomagnetic storm and the resulting Aurora Borealis. This photo was taken by Lauri Kangas of Fort Frances with a tripod-mounted Canon DSLR.
