Big Solar Flare Creates Spectacular Northern Lights [VIDEO]

Aurora Borealis over Greenland (Uriel Sinai/Getty)Have you ever seen the Northern Lights?

This year, the Aurora Borealis is extra vivid and spectacular due to the largest solar flare in six years.

Even scientists in Finland, where they see them regularly, have been impressed.

If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll even be able to catch a glimpse of the phenomenon on one of the clear nights here in Wyoming.I remember on a trip to Montana, while driving north on I-25, we saw some strange lights in the sky. That was my first experience seeing the Aurora Borealis with my own eyes.

It is a unique and astonishing natural event that doesn’t happen real often, so as Jack Horkheimer says, “keep looking up.”

Meanwhile, enjoy this YouTube clip recorded in Fairbanks, Alaska earlier this month.
