Mt. Washington has been in the news quite a bit lately, partially due to the recording of the coldest windchill ever in the United States. Yesterday, Mt. Washington made the news for a spectacular reason.
The Northern Lights, which are typically only seen in high-latitude regions of our planet, were seen by the Mt. Washington Observatory. They were visible from 1:00 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. eastern time. People also saw the Northern Lights in Maine and Vermont. The Northern Lights feature a blend of yellow, green, red, and orange colors, and it’s incredible footage.
The video from the Mount Washington Observatory is below.
From ~0100 to 0430 EST this morning, the #NorthernLights were visible from the summit (as well as VT/ME). An upcoming Science in the Mountain program will be discussing Aurora Borealis. The full schedule of our FREE online programs is available at https://t.co/Z3Ltm7QWRn pic.twitter.com/9OzFNc83My
