Last night Dustin Dilworth of D3 Imagery captured some amazing footage of the Northern Lights over the Mackinac Bridge.

Dilworth captured the aurora borealis in a super cool time-lapse video which has already been shared thousands of times on social media. after watching the video, you'll understand why.

According to, northern Michigan sits in a great location latitude-wise, as the auroral oval dips further south on nights of stronger auroral activity. The Upper Peninsula is blessed with hundreds of miles of shoreline along the south shore of Lake Superior, which provides some of the best northern lights viewing in the lower 48 due to the very dark night skies. When looking north over Lake Superior, one can see right down to the horizon and take in a 180-degree unobstructed view of the night sky.

It really is something to see in person that's for sure. I was lucky enough to view the northern lights when I was a little kid but it's something that I still remember clearly today.
