Default Spectacular Light Show

Last night I and thousands of others in the northern parts of North America were treated to a fantastic display of the Aurora Borealis. I was in an excellent location for viewing. I had left my deer stand before sunset and was waiting for the rest of the party to return to the vehicles. There were no lights to diminish the awesome show. As the sun set I looked up and I was treated to something I had never witnessed in such brilliance. The colors, curtains of light and the shimmering lights were a sight I will never forget. It made any laser light show lame by comparison because this one was done by ionized particles and our own magnetic field.

The Aurora is supposed to be visible for the next two nights. So if you are in the northern part of the country, don't have a lot of city lights to contend with and have clear skies, take a look. You won't be disappointed.

Take care,
Mike(Who'll be looking to northern skies after sunset)
