Minnesota Aurora Borealis lights danced as quake struck Japan [VIDEO]

Northern Lights near St. Cloud.
Anyone up around midnight on March 10 in St. Cloud and points north, and outside with their eyes open, stood a good chance of witnessing a magnificent display of the Northern Lights -- the Aurora Borealis. Some video was just posted in YouTube.

This particular display of vivid, dancing green light was made more spectacular because it was fed by a very strong sun flare called a Coronal Mass Ejection, according to NASA.

Now, conspiracy theorists are having a field day, because the lights peaked at the same time as that massive earthquake in Japan. (Just to be clear: There's no scientific evidence that CMEs cause earthquakes.)

This clip was shot just north of St. Cloud.

I'm not a scientist and even I know CME's don't cause earthquakes... Two completely different systems acting on their own, the only similarity I see is that people are afraid of both...
