Northern Lights Played in the Montana Sky Again
After the moon slipped behind the Bitterroot Mountains, the Northern Lights were visible in the valley.
It was apparently the second night in a row that aurora was visible in the night sky.
The people who were trying to catch a glimpse of the colorful display were also treated to what looked like a large meteor just before 11 p.m. A NASA official in Utah said the object was a discarded lower stage of a recent Chinese rocket launch. Over 100 reports were noted from Washington State, Idaho, Utah and Montana.
The aurora colors were nice, even without the fireball (see photo).
