A dazzling natural light show lit up the Calgary sky this weekend. It was one of the most powerful and colourful Northern Lights displays in the region in years.

Of course, those who were further north and away from urban areas saw a greater intensity of the display but the Northern Lights were also seen as far south as Seattle and Michigan.

And if you ventured out to the mountains, you would have seen the light show as well.
