The northern lights fill the sky over the south shore of Lake Superior east of Superior, Wis. above Duluth, Minn., pictured above, and are also seen in the sky over Lake Elora in northern Minnesota early, July 15, below. A solar storm sparked the show in the skies over the Upper Midwest and could also be active tonight.
