People who were up very early Monday morning had the chance to see aurora borealis light up the night skies on Vancouver Island. Aurora borealis – also known as the northern lights- could also be seen as far away as Seattle, with the National Weather Service (NWS) tweeting that even with urban light pollution, they were visible as of 2 a.m. The NWS Seattle later tweeted a photo taken on their roof.
