BAY LAKE, Mich. (CNN) – The geomagnetic storm known as the aurora borealis was visible in parts of the United States on Sunday.
A time-lapse video captured the phenomenon also known as the northern lights in Bay Shore, Michigan. The phenomenon happens when electrically charged particles collide with neutral atoms in the upper atmosphere, creating a spectacular show of lights.
Experts said the best time to watch the light show was from 11 p.m. Sunday through 5 a.m. Monday.
