For those of us who work during the evening, it was hard not to be distracted by one of our favorite shows Thursday.

This show wasn't on TV or a tablet, though, it was the one Mother Nature put on the air outside our window in the Twin Cities.

But of course that show was captured by many photographers, so now it is available on your tablet, phone, or laptop. Here's a sampling of the sky photos posted to Twitter:
