The northern lights were visible in South Dakota Monday night. The aurora borealis put on a stunning show for those who stayed up through the wee small hours. A severe geomagnetic storm created a colorful display that could be seen as far south as Texas. It was the strongest northern lights display in more than a decade. Mike Fuhs meterologist with the National Weather Service office in Sioux Falls joined Dakota Midday said that those who missed the spectacle should have another chance Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
