Scientists say a powerful geomagnetic storm caused this stunning panorama of the Aurora Borealis.
"A powerful G2 Class Geomagnetic Storm impacted the earth overnight and created a vivid display of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights over central Minnesota," said stormchasingvideo.com. "This time lapse footage was shot between 3 AM and 4 AM just after the moon had set and before civil twilight that starts just after 4 AM."
