Spectacular Northern Lights Photos From North Dakota & Minn.
The Northern Lights, or its scientific name "Aurora Borealis" is a rare treat we get to see in this neck of the woods.
Have you ever wondered how this visual spectacle all comes together? According to Northern Lights Centre, "they are the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere."
What about the different spectacular colors we get to enjoy? That is due to the type of gas particles that are colliding.
We are getting into a lot of science talk that obviously I should've been paying more attention to back in school. No matter how it happens, I sure do love when it does.
I came across some pretty incredible pictures of the Northern Lights from our Facebook fans, and I decided to grab some of the best of the best and share them with you.
These pictures are all from last Thursday, March 23rd, and Friday, March 24th.
Unfortunately in the Bismarck Mandan area, we saw snow fog move in late Friday afternoon, so we missed out on the Friday night show.
So, without further ado here are some Northern Lights Nuggets from North Dakota & Minnesota.
