If you remember earlier in the week, we talked about the Earth experiencing its strongest solar geomagnetic storm in six years. Even though we never got a chance to see the Northern Lights in Kentuckiana, that storm helped to trigger the aurora borealis over the northern latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. At one point, there was a chance that the northern latitudes of the United States (and even the parts of the southern U.S.) would be able to take in the show. The show was predominately confined to northern Canada and northern Europe; particularly Scandinavia.

Take a look at some of the amazing pictures from this event!
