The video shows the northern lights glowing green and flashing over the skies near Wheaton.
The phenomenon is also known as the Aurora Borealis, and it's caused by something called a coronal mass ejection, or CME.
That's when the sun releases a massive burst of solar wind, sending billions of particles into space.
NASA says the CME hit earth's magnetic field last weekend.
It caused a geomagnetic storm that we see here on Earth as the northern lights.
NASA also says CMEs can affect electronic systems in satellites and on the ground.
