Video: Spectacular "Northern Lights" footage

The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, were spotted over St. Cloud, Minnesota late Tuesday night.

Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead, but from farther away, they illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the Sun were rising from an unusual direction.

A freelance videographer captured the light show in the town of St. Cloud.
