Last week, an undetected solar storm sent a wave of charged particles hurtling toward Earth. On the night of May 31st, those particles crashed into our planet's magnetic field and rattled the upper atmosphere, igniting the sky in an unanticipated burst of purple, pink and green.

Astrophotographer Brad Goldpaint was lucky enough to be shooting at Oregon's Crater Lake when the surprise aurorae unfurled across the sky.

Absolutely stunning!

I always wished I lived in an area where I could see them happening with my own eyes...

Is anyone ever watching from beneath them?

Because they always seem to be happening far away?

After awhile do people who live where the auroras are often visible end up taking them for granted and not really care about watching them?

Do they happen every night?

Are they visible at all during the day?

I think I read that sometimes the auroras are visible in more southerly areas where they're almost never seen?

I live fairly far up north in southern new england relatively close to the canadian border and I've never once seen an auroral display...

Too bad,because seeing those colorful swirling larger than life cosmic displays must be awesome...
