PHOTOS: People take in stunning northern lights show in Fraser Valley

Solar storm brought aurora borealis to B.C. with purple, pink, green swirling through night sky

People in B.C. were treated to a stunning light show by Mother Nature late Friday night and into early Saturday morning.

A solar storm brought the northern lights to the province as purple, pink and green colours swirled through the night sky on May 10.

In the Fraser Valley and Chilliwack, people flocked to areas lining the Fraser River including Ballam Road, McDonald Park and Old Orchard Road, as seen in these images.

It was the strongest aurora borealis display in 20 years.
