As you may remember from an earlier post, we saw the aurora borealis, or northern lights, from our home in Tennessee on May 10, 2024, as did many other people all across the United States. While that first post featured photos of the more “traditional” aurora borealis look, that look did not last all that long. However, the sky still put on a great show for quite a while. Have a look at these photos!

The aurora borealis, or northern lights, shine over the skies of Southwest Tennessee during their North American visibility on May 10, 2024. You have most likely seen by now that the aurora borealis was visible into the southern United States, thanks to a major geomagnetic storm due to solar flares and coronal mass ejections. That all sounds like I know what I am talking about, doesn’t it? Yes, the sun spewed out some plasma, which made its way to earth, causing geomagnetic storms.
