The northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, brought a magical glow to be captured Friday night. The spectacular show could be seen by millions of Americans in a widespread magical glow throughout the United States. In Appleton, Heather Giese took this phenomenal photo with the magical glow of the aurora behind the Appleton water tower. Thank you, Heather, for sharing this great photo with Appleton Press readers!
