Northern Lights in Charlottetown last night

Did you see the Northern Lights last night between 8:00 and 8:30pm? Amazing. We could clearly see red and green lights throughout the sky, and we were standing under the glow of a nearby streetlight. At one point the eastern sky was so red it looked like there was a huge forest fire off in the distance. I even managed to snag a few pics. They're not perfect but I was pleasantly surprised that they came out at all. Apparently the increased activity is related to the recent solar flares. While trickin' and treatin' tonight, keep an eye on the sky.
