Solar storms on Sunday, August 1, 2010 sent plasma hurling toward the Earth. The plasma blast is responsible for giving millions of people around the world this special treat… Seeing the Northern Lights from locations much farther south than normally possible!

The photographer of these photos, Robert Snache, stated that this wasn’t the glow he was looking for. However, I feel the glow of the city lights mixed with the green hue of the Northern Lights makes for one FANTASTIC photograph!
