These crisp, clear nights with perfect conditions across the entire hemisphere have seen the Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis, dancing in the skies above locations in Quebec, Ohio, Wisconsin, and in BC. Rarely dipping as far south as Vancouver, this stunning celestial display has been captured by local photographers over the last week.
