Vancouverites were pleasantly surprised over the long weekend when Northern Lights appeared over the local mountains.

According to the Space Weather Prediction Centre, this was caused by a solar flare that happened on Saturday, Oct. 9 but only reached Earth on Oct. 11.

Lucky individuals were able to catch the light show on Monday night from all over Metro Vancouver. Although the bright colours captured in photos would usually only show up after a long exposure, some of it could still clearly be seen by the naked eye or smartphone camera.
