Bright Green Aurora Dazzles Over Calgary Skyline

The northern lights shimmered above the Calgary city skyline on February 26.

Video shot by radio host Ian MacKinnon shows the vibrant aurora “putting on a show” late Sunday night over downtown Calgary.

“The glow suddenly burst to life and filled the sky,” MacKinnon said, adding that it’s “very rare” to witness the aurora this clearly in the middle of the city, especially as far south as Calgary. Credit: Ian MacKinnon via Storyful
