British Columbians were treated to quite the spectacle on Monday night, as much of the sky was illuminated by the bright and stunning aurora borealis.
Don’t fret if you missed out on the light show, though. People took to social media to post their photos and we’ve rounded up some of the best shots from across the province.

Very wide #Aurora visible just now in #Vancouver thanks to a solar storm.
Note: while these colours/brightness only show up in long exposure photos, you could clearly see the aurora with the naked eye, as well as on a smartphone camera #AuroraBorealis #NorthernLights pic.twitter.com/ToV47IFVRi
