This photo comes from National Geographic: "A burst of solar wind—charged particles from the sun—struck Earth on Tuesday, triggering auroras as far south as Michigan, as seen in this picture taken from the shores of Lake Superior in Marquette. 'Just saw some amazing aurora this morning. Color was unreal. Haven't seen this kind of activity in awhile,' photographer Shawn Malone said in an email."
