GOWER, Mo. — A few lucky stargazers caught a glimpse of a rare phenomenon Sunday night. 

A geomagnetic storm caused the aurora borealis, more commonly known as the northern lights, to be seen in northern Missouri. 

Residents in more than a dozen U.S. states had the chance to take in the colorful lights in the sky Sunday thanks to recent activity on the Sun.
