Unexpected Northern Lights Over Grand Rapids Minnesota

Northern Lights are quite surprising when sun activity is low!

Nevertheless, some Auroras have been witnessed and photographed on July 26th over Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

The photographer was baffled and enjoyed the ‘returning’ dancing color display since it has been a pretty quiet summer in northern Minnesota for seeing auroras.

According to Spaceweather.com, the source of this unexpected aurora borealis was a fluctuation in the interplanetary magnetic field. The IMF tipped south, opening a crack in Earth’s magnetospere. Solar wind poured in and ignited the auroras.

So it is nice to see Northern Lights again! And hopefuly we will get to see some more!
