DOUGLAS COUNTY, MN (WXOW) - A light show setting the sky ablaze early this morning over parts of Minnesota.
The northern lights also known as the Aurora Borealis, form when a solar wind of charged particles from the sun enter earth's magnetic field, that accelerates electrically charged particles trapped within.
This time-lapse video was captured just west of Alexandria, Minnesota in Douglas County.
