WHEATON, Minnesota -- There was an amazing and surreal spectacle in the skies over Minnesota.

The Northern Lights glowed green and flashed over the skies near Wheaton Wednesday morning. The phenomenon is also known as the Aurora Borealis, and is caused by a burst of solar wind from the sun.

NASA says the burst first hit Earth's magnetic field last weekend and will continue this week.
