From western Manitoba, up to Churchill, and back down to the province's capital, the northern lights returned on Monday evening and put on a show. 

Manitobans rushed outside to take in the spectacular sight, and many have sent their photos to us.

Northern lights come from instabilities in the sun's magnetic field, according to Popular Mechanics.

"The resulting coronal mass ejection (CME)—a solar eruption that ejects billions of tons of superheated plasma into space—can travel through the solar system at more than 45 million miles per hour, reaching Earth in less than a day."

There is a strong possibility that the lights will return this evening.
