Storm from space sparks greatest light show on Earth

The solar storm that swept past Earth over the weekend didn’t disrupt any power grids, but it did turn on the auroral lights for skywatchers over a wide swath of North America, extending at least as far down as Arkansas.

SpaceWeather.com cataloged stunning photos from the usual places in northern climes, including Canadian provinces as well as the northern tier of the United States. But this particular solar storm — sparked by last Thursday’s big coronal mass ejection, or CME — didn’t stop there. Photographers sent in pictures from Arkansas as well as OhioNebraskaUtahCalifornia and other locales well south of the usual places. There were auroral images as well from ScotlandHungary, and yes, from New ZealandTasmania and the South Pole at the other end of the world.
