If you were up at 2AM near Briggsdale, Colorado this past Tuesday, you could have seen this gorgeous display of the Northern Lights. Thankfully someone caught it on video and put it on YouTube for the world to see!

This was posted to YouTube by Ryan Shepard with this in the description: "Northern Lights seen from northeast of Briggsdale, CO after 2am on Oct 2nd 2013." You can see more of Shepard's pictures on his Facebook page.

Now that you've appreciated that 15 seconds of beauty, you could click here and do a little reading to learn what, exactly, the northern lights are. (Who knows, it could make you look like a genius at some trivia night.)
