Indianapolis, IN – Residents of Indiana were treated to a spectacular display of the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, last night. 

The skies over the state lit up with mesmerizing waves of pink, purple, blue, and red. This rare sighting in the Midwest was made possible by a powerful solar storm that impacted Earth, extending the typically polar phenomena further south than usual.

According to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis, the aurora occurs when solar radiation interacts with the Earth’s magnetic field, energizing particles in the ionosphere. This interaction created the stunning light show that captivated local residents. Photographers and nature enthusiasts alike took to the outdoors to capture this memorable event.

In related weather news, a frontal boundary moved through the area earlier today, bringing gusty northwest winds that are expected to reach up to 35 mph. While the temperatures will remain cooler today and tomorrow, a warm-up is anticipated by Sunday. The weather outlook remains mostly dry for the weekend, with the next chance of rain forecasted to arrive in the Ohio Valley by early next week.
