Scene in Edmonds: Northern lights

Photographer Tom St. John shared his views of the northern lights early Monday morning around 12:30 a.m. from Edmonds. The northern lights, or aurora borealis, occur when solar winds create disturbances in the magnetosphere. This post from Earthsky called it a surprise geomagnetic storm, “with perhaps more geomagnetic storming to come.”

  1. To think that someone stays up all night, just so the rest of us can enjoy such a marvelous photo.
    Thank you, Tom.

  2. Wow! Beautiful photos, Tom. So sorry I closed my blinds and went to bed just minutes before that. I would have had a direct view of it too! Thank you for capturing these and sharing!
