Iowa and Illinois Residents Marvel at Northern Lights Display


Share post:

Davenport, IA – Last night, the skies above the Quad Cities, spanning Iowa and Illinois, were aglow with the stunning Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. This rare celestial phenomenon was visible far from its usual Arctic haunts due to a significant solar storm that recently impacted Earth. Waves of pink, purple, blue, and red danced across the heavens, captivating spectators with their ethereal beauty.

The U.S. National Weather Service in the Quad Cities captured the moment from their office and urged locals to take advantage of the clearing skies for optimal viewing. As the community heads into a pleasant Mother’s Day weekend, the forecast suggests another potential viewing opportunity later tonight. Residents are encouraged to stay safe, enjoy the cool evening with a light jacket, and share their photographs of the Aurora.
