TOPEKA, Kan. (KWCH) - The National Weather Service in Topeka captured an atmospheric phenomenon early Friday morning.

“Not quite visible to the naked eye yet, but with a longer camera exposure, the aurora has made an appearance in Topeka! Just enough breaks in the clouds to briefly get a view,” said the weather service.

The phenomena produced by electromagnetic waves during geomagnetic storms are less rare in the contiguous United States and are most well-known for appearing in Alaska. Nevertheless, it’s always a breathtaking sight.
