Northern lights put on dreamy show across British Columbia


On a clear, cool Monday night, as the first long weekend of the fall season came to a quiet close, a mesmerizing ribbon of neon-green light burst across the sky over British Columbia.

The northern lights gave families a show from Vancouver Island to Fort St. John and the Kootenays, starting around 9:30 p.m. PT.

The spectacle was made visible in southern parts of Western Canada by a “solar flare” event, according to CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe. The aurora borealis is usually best seen in the Arctic.
