Photos: Last Night’s Northern Lights in New England

The sky exhibited a glowing show for the locals who stayed up to watch.

Extraordinary light shows typically reserved for more northern latitudes graced the skies of New England on Sunday night.

The aurora borealis, or the Northern Lights, were visible throughout the Northeast, mainly appearing along the coast from Maine to Massachusetts. The curtains of green and purple light are visible to the human eye when charged particles from the sun interact with magnetic fields on Earth. A geomagnetic storm brought the light show to the area.

Below are photos captured by a lucky few observers last night.
