Kelownians were treated to a magnificent Thanksgiving display last night as the heavens were turned green by the Northern Lights.

The beautiful spectacle – also called the Aurora Borealis – occurs when particles from the sun get caught in Earth's magnetic field.

Canadians across the country reported seeing the display. 

Below are some of the best snaps from the Kelowna area.
