Northern lights dance across early morning sky

Global News

TORONTO – If you were up early enough here in Canada, you may have caught a glimpse of the northern lights in the early morning sky Wednesday.

A coronal mass ejection – a stream of particles thrown out by the sun – reached Earth early Wednesday morning, sparking the dancing lights.

The Kp index, which is used to measure Earth’s magnetic strength, peaked at 4, which meant that high-latitude sky watchers across Canada were in the best place to catch the lights.

Notanee Bourassa captured a timelapse of the northern lights as they danced across the sky north of Regina, Saskatchewan.
