(RNN) - The mid-South was surprised Monday night with a rare sighting of the phenomenon known as the aurora borealis, or Northern Light, and forecasters say the effect could make a second appearance tonight.
Reported sightings of the aurora trickled in from Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and as far south as northern Arkansas and Mississippi, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
One viewer reported seeing the aurora in Corning, AR.
Monday's aurora was rare because of how far south its glow could be witnessed.
