Photos: Northern lights dazzle B.C. skies over Thanksgiving weekend
Residents across B.C. were treated to a dazzling show of the northern lights to cap off the Thanksgiving long weekend.
Even those living in Metro Vancouver – where light pollution may have reduced the vibrancy of the spectacle – managed to catch a glimpse late Monday night.

Very wide #Aurora visible just now in #Vancouver thanks to a solar storm.
Note: while these colours/brightness only show up in long exposure photos, you could clearly see the aurora with the naked eye, as well as on a smartphone camera #AuroraBorealis #NorthernLights pic.twitter.com/ToV47IFVRi
