There was a brilliant display across the skies of North America early Tuesday morning. The strongest Aurora Borealis in a decade lit up the night sky from the Dakotas to Colorado to Minnesota to New England.

Astronaut Scott Kelly is on board the International Space Station. He captured images of it when it was glowing red.

Space weather forecasters say major geomagnetic storms caused the strongest display of northern lights in more than ten years; one of the biggest since 2003.

Forecasters expect more solar storms for the rest of Tuesday, which means you could see another round of northern lights tonight into early Wednesday morning.
