Aurora borealis? At this time of year? In this part of the country?

Thanks to an intense G4 category geomagnetic storm, residents of Waterloo Region could get the chance to see the northern lights again Wednesday night.

The storm means the sun is sending more charged particles our way – and when those particles strike the Earth’s magnetic field, they become visible as the aurora. 

On Tuesday night, region residents looking at the night sky saw the aurora dancing overhead, an unusual sigh this far south. Della Stroobosscher sent us this lovely photo of the northern lights in her backyard.
