Amazing aurora borealis photos from Oct. 24, 2011 (GALLERY)

In the wee hours of Monday, Oct. 24, 2011, a geomagnetic storm started slamming earth's atmosphere with waves of charged particles. From the ground, it almost looked like immense fireworks were going off in the sky. The aurora borealis was so intense that residents of the Deep South even got a peek. Here's are photos of what the storm looked like at its peak, courtesy of Lake Superior Photo. Check out Lake Superior Photo on Facebook for more. (LINK TO PHOTO GALLERY.)
