Of course, Dustin posted this astonishing video on the official Facebook page of D3 Imagery yesterday morning. As expected, the footage went viral and in its first hours gathered more than 20,000 views and above 1,400 shares.
Northern Lights are not a rare phenomenon in Michigan
Northern Lights (also known as Aurora Borealis) is undoubtedly a fascinating phenomenon whose beauty does not fit in small words. A colorful dance gives a stunning show when charged solar particles collide with those of the Earth’s atmosphere.
Despite popular beliefs that Aurora Borealis can only be observed from the far north or the Arctic Circle, this tremendous phenomenon can also be enjoyed in regions at lower latitudes.
As for Michigan, its Upper Peninsula is blessed with large areas with almost no pollution and, furthermore, the Lake Superior’s shores pose as a great place from which to observe the stunning phenomenon of Northern Lights. Mackinac Bridge, which makes the connection between the Lower and the Upper peninsulas is also a great observation spot for Aurora Borealis.
