Aurora Borealis Northern Lights Storm over Centre 2000 in Muskoseepi Park - Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada | FollowPanda.COM

February 19, 2014: A massive northern light storm displayed above Grande Prairie Centre 2000.

CMEs struck Earth’s magnetic field on February 19, 2014, producing G2-class geomagnetic storms and auroras over the sky directly above the city of Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. It was a very cold evening around -20oC. The sky was clear and great for watching northern lights. The aurora last more than 5 hours. This was the biggest and brightest aurora I’ve seen so far in the last 5 years. The aurora was so intense that it was visible within the city of Grande Prairie, despite severe light pollution.
