Northern Lights Reach into the South of the USA

A coronal mass ejection hit Earth's magnetic field on Monday, October 24 at approximately 2pm ET. This enabled the northern lights to be seen as far south as Arkansas, Tennessee, northern Alabama, northern Mississippi and North Carolina. For most, the aurora appeared as a red glow in the northern sky.

A guy near us took this pic of the northern lights and posted it on Facebook. Picture doesn't do it justice. http://twitpic.com/75epwp
