Saint Patrick’s Day Aurora in Duluth, MN | Moses Images

Northern Minnesota saw a lot of green on Saint Patrick’s Day thanks to a brilliant Northern Lights brought on by solar activity a few days ago. Many people saw the lights in the early morning hours of the 17th and then we waited for the sun to go down for a repeat show as twilight gave way to darkness. While the evening display wasn’t as spectacular as the early morning it was still worth the chase.

First two are from the early morning (4:30am) in the Piedmont neighborhood looking towards the Duluth central hill side.
