Stargazers were in for a rare cosmic light show as the Northern Lights danced across the night sky in North America in the night of 3 November.

People from Canada and the northern part of the United States were able to admire an influx of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma interacting with the earth's atmosphere - or in more romantic words - an Aurora Borealis.

A photographer from Michigan was able to capture the beauty and movement of this rare phenomenon staying out until 3am in Marquette at the top of the Sugarloaf Mountain in Michigan.
