St. Cloud, MN. (CNN) – Stargazers were treated to an amazing celestial show in the skies above St. Cloud, Minnesota early Sunday.

The northern lights danced across the heavens in a dazzling display of vivid moving colors.

Scientists say a powerful geomagnetic storm caused this stunning panorama of the Aurora Borealis.

A powerful G2 Class Geomagnetic Storm impacted the earth overnight and created a vivid display of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights over central Minnesota.

This time lapse footage was shot between 3 AM and 4 AM just after the moon had set and before civil twilight that starts just after 4 AM. – Stormchasingvideo.com
