The Northern Lights were out and visible this past weekend.

Clear skies around Minnesota this past weekend made for ideal conditions to view the Northern Lights, and photos shared by some Minnesotans in the Minnesota thread of Reddit reveal just how stunning the Aurora Borealis was.

According to Rove.me, the best season to see the Northern Lights in Minnesota is the "long, starry nights of fall and winter," broadly considered between September and February. While mid-March may be considered out of season, weather conditions -- including solar flares and solar wind -- play a huge role in seeing the lights.

While Minnesota as a whole is a great state to view the Northern Lights, some of the best areas to view from according to Explore Minnesota are:

Park Rapids, St. Cloud, Stillwater, Lake City, Mankato and Rochester are also included as areas outside of Northern Minnesota for decent Aurora Borealis gazing.
