Northern Lights seen from Mount Pleasant

A rare display of the Northern Lights could be seen from the Mount Pleasant area Monday night and early Tuesday morning, painting the sky with auroras of green and red light.

According to the Space Weather Prediction Center, increased solar activity Saturday caused the geomagnetic storm. Northern Lights are caused by charged solar particles colliding with atoms in the upper atmosphere. Photo Editor Jeff Smith captured these images around 1 a.m. on Remus Road 20 miles west of Mount Pleasant.
