The Northern Lights Shine Down on Mendocino County’s Northern Reaches

The sun let loose a coronal mass ejection on Friday, April 21, 2023. Two days later, a geomagnetic storm struck Earth causing the Northern Lights to be seen as far south as the United States/Mexico border.

On Sunday night, Bell Springs resident Emily Wood took these photographs of the ethereal lights shimmering in the skies above Northern Mendocino County.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
