AURORA, Colo. -- The Aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights, put on a dazzling show in the Colorado sky overnight Monday into Tuesday morning. There may be another good chance to see the show in Colorado Wednesday night.

Fawn Wood captured the spectacular scene over Denver International Airport about midnight.

Dustin Price also captured a shot of the northern lights in northeastern Colorado.

And Marc Swanson emailed a photo that he captured.

The northern lights are not always visible to the naked eye or seen in Colorado. But a geomagnetic storm ranked "severe" allowed for the colorful display that were the strongest in the state in more than a decade.

The northern lights could make another strong appearance Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
