Residents in the northern U.S., Canada, and certain parts of Europe may have noticed the natural wonder glittering across the skies this weekend.
Saturday star-gazers were treated to the aurora borealis, or Northern Lights, which were caused by the sun spitting out a burst of plasma on May 23. This Coronal Mass Ejection, also known as a CME, put on a cosmic light show worth pointing cameras and smart-phones at the heavens.
Check out the breathtaking photography shared online over the long weekend.
