39 spectacular photos from last night's Northern Lights display across Canada

Sep 30 2016, 1:37 pm

Last night, all over Canada, the sky put on a show.

The Northern Lights spread themselves across the night like a cozy green blanket, and those lucky enough to see them will likely never forget the experience.

As we told you yesterday, the best views came the farthest away from city urban centres, and the NWT, Yukon, Northern BC, Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec all have some truly breathtaking images on offer.

So the next time Canada gets to enjoy the results of a rare geomagnetic storm, we suggest you get your ass out of the city and head north.

Here are 39 reasons we can guarantee you won’t regret it.
