Skywatchers across Canada and the U.S. were recently treated to a light show, courtesy of Mother Nature.

A solar flare collided with the earth's magnetic field on October 24, causing the atmosphere to emit a stunning, multi-coloured glow - also known as the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights.

While common in the north, this display was seen as far south as Texas.

Viewers of The Weather Network reported seeing the lights from B.C. to Nova Scotia.
