Northern Lights Glow Above Manitoba Following Rare Lunar Occultation

The northern lights made an appearance over northern Manitoba after Mars was eclipsed by the full moon on December 7.

Footage filmed by Reynald John Roldan shows the beautiful aurora shining in the clear night sky.

Roldan told Storyful that Canada was in “a prime location” for the rare lunar occultation, with northern Manitoba then being treated to a “magical aurora show”.

“The frigid weather made the sky look purplish in color too,” Roldan added. Credit: @rjayroldan via Storyful
