According to social media accounts, dazzling northern light show lit the skies over the northwestern states as well as Canadian provinces.

Social media accounts verified by NBC News revealed that lights could be seen in Minnesota, Alaska, Washington, and Alberta, Manitoba, and British Columbia in Canada.

“Driving home watching the Northern Lights dance and change colour along the way #AuroraBorealis,” wrote one Canadian Twitter user.

The aurora borealis show was caused by what the Space Weather Prediction Center, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said was a G2, or moderate, geomagnetic storm. A G2 storm, caused by a coronal mass eruption or solar flare, can cause problems for Earth. Power systems at high latitudes may experience voltage alarms, fluctuations and transformer damage. Spacecraft may also need to take corrective measures to their orbits. @LachDonna, a

Twitter User, posted photos of green bands lighting up a nighttime field in Canada.

G2 storms cause aurora borealis shows as far south as New York and Washington state, according to NOAA.

Recent research into the aurora borealis suggests that the solar-charged light show may even produce faint clapping sounds, NBC News reported.
