'Most Insane Aurora of My Life': Stunning Northern Lights Shine Bright Over Alaska

An aurora chaser in Fairbanks, Alaska, captured a stunning view of the northern lights in the early hours of Friday, March 24.

This footage was captured by Vincent Ledvina, who called it “the most Insane aurora of my life” and said could not believe what he saw. “It was definitely the best northern lights I’ve ever seen,” he told Storyful.

Other views of the aurora could be seen across North America, including Washington, Idaho, Montana, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the upper peninsula of Michigan early Friday morning, local media reported. Credit: Vincent Ledvina via Storyful
