Photos: Spectacular Views of Sunday's Aurora

A dazzling aurora was visible as far south as Kansas on Sunday night, thanks to an earth directed coronal mass ejection solar flare that occurred on Friday. Monday night may still offer views in the northern United States, according to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist and Astronomer Mark Paquette.

"It's tough to say for sure how long it will last," Paquette said. "I would not think tonight will be as busy as last night, but it may be."
