Beauty in a 1 minute..
Here is a time lapse video of the Northern Lights in the early morning hours of 7/15/2012 taken just north of Dubuque, Iowa at the Balltown, Iowa scenic overlook.
And the scenes of a green and purple aura in the sky are absolutely amazing.
Not sure if my hometown saw northern lights.. sadly the sky was cloudy all night.
Sunspot 1520 and the X flare last week caused this spectacular show, and I am truly jealous of whoever got to see it..including the residents of Balltown, Iowa.
