See stunning northern lights photos: The celestial sight dazzled again on Saturday

On Saturday, minutes before midnight, folks parked their cars, whipped out the bug spray and laid out blankets at a dark recreation area off the side of Interstate 75 in South Florida and waited for a glimpse of the northern lights.

While they didn’t see much more than dozens of twinkling stars and an alligator lurking in dark, murky waters behind a guard rail, the ongoing solar storm provided a celestial spectacle in other parts of the country where enthusiastic viewers took to social media and elsewhere to share the sights.

As forecasters predict even better viewing on Sunday night, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, here’s what people saw Saturday.

Better luck elsewhere

Those in Reno, Nevada, got to see a spectacle of purples and blues as the northern lights danced across the horizon.

Photos from the National Weather Service’s Reno office near Truckee Meadows Community College show the full extent of the colorful night sky.
