See the best images from last night's spectacular northern lights show


Minnesota was lit up last night as a solar storm made for spectacular aurora activity across the state.

And plenty of Minnesotans made their way outside around midnight to view the phenomenon.

Here are some of the best pictures we've seen shared on social media.
