Spectacular Northern Lights photos from northern Minnesota

“Since I moved to Duluth, as long as the Northern Lights were out, I could see them,” says photographer Matthew Moses. After a long dry spell, aurora danced across Minnesota on Sunday. The brilliant display wowed those in northern Minnesota especially, although it was visible throughout the state. Moses has photographed all manner of objects in the night sky, including meteor showers, comets, and the Milky Way. But he is captivated by a clear view at night — especially a view of the Northern Lights. Moses is part of a group called the Great Lakes Aurora Hunters, which tracks the Northern Lights throughout the Great Lakes region. “I just kind of gravitated to the Northern Lights because of the beauty of it,” he says.
