Northern Lights in Minnesota

| Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Northern Lights in Minnesota. One of the most amazing and breathtaking phenomena on Earth.
from flickr user Vicky Mahodaya
They started to wiggle and move from north to south like wind was blowing them away. It kept creeping up and soon covered half of the sky up top. The Northern Lights have erupted for two consecutive nights and have been visible into southern Minnesota. This photo is from the first night (late Monday / early Tuesday) but there may be an unprecedented third night of this spectacular light show tonight!

Modest Mouse - who gained mass exposure with the mid-2000s hit 'Float On' - headlined 89.3 The Current and Walker Art Center's Rock The Garden festival on Sunday evening. With a modest resurgence in the popularity of Modest Mouse, fans apparently got a decent mix of underground / rising artists and seasoned veterans of the indie music scene.

While it's not entirely impossible for the Northern Lights to be seen during the summer months in Minnesota, it's is rare for the Aurora Borealis to be seen this far south in late June. This photo - taken southwest of Minneapolis in rural Scott County - depicts a vibrant show overnight in a serene countryside setting.

Illicit nighttime tour of the new Minnesota Vikings stadium with photos

During an illicit tour of the too-easy-to-access Minnesota Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis, a New York-based writer and photographer went where no member of the general public will ever go -- on a self-guided tour of the under-construction ballpark.

Towering steel and looming cranes occupy the space inside this small city which will seat tens of thousands of football fans just over a year from now. Check out the Deadspin story to see more photos.

Hastings, MN bridge at night

While the relatively new Hastings, MN bridge spanning the Mississippi River isn't a historically relevant piece of infrastructure like its predecessor, it is a striking piece or architecture in its own right - especially when lit up at night as it carries drivers to and from the city of Hastings.
