IOWA — The Northern Lights dazzled Iowans late Sunday night. A major mass coronal ejection on Sunday afternoon made its way toward the Earth just in time to interact with the atmosphere late into the night. The strength of this geomagnetic storm reached so far south that even Kansas was able to few the aurora borealis. It is very unusual for the spectacle to be seen so far south.
Many central Iowa viewers shared their pictures with us. The pictures are gorgeous but when you see the Northern Lights in person they pulsate and dance across the sky.
