An uncommon, all-red aurora borealis or Northern Light appeared over the skies of the city of Independence in Missouri at 2 p.m. ET Oct. 24.

NASA has released the pictures of the aurora which was caused by the strong magnetic field fluctuations near Earth's surface. It could be seen in the U.S. as far south as the state of Alabama.

Such completely red aurora are not as common as green aurora, however they can happen during strong solar activity and they occur a little more often at low latitudes, NASA said in a statement, as it posted two pictures of the aurora Tuesday.
