Photos: Northern lights shine down on central Iowa

According to the National Weather Service, the northern lights, which are the result of interactions between the Sun and Earth’s outer atmosphere, were visible in the clear Iowa skies last week as a result of a rare geomagnetic storm.

The following photos were submitted by StoryCounty.News reader Ian Luedke. The shots of aurora borealis were captured north of Boone between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. on the morning of Friday, March 24.
