Northern Lights, similar to what we saw last night.
Last night after the Ten O'Clock News, Hubs told me that we would be able to see the Northern Lights for the next couple of nights round about midnight. These sorts of things excite and thrill me. I'm a watcher of the sky. So after we snuggled into bed and talked about the day for an hour, I asked if he would like to join me outdoors to see The Lights. We pulled on our jeans and sweatshirts and walked out through the crunchy cottonwood leaves in the yard to see what we could see. There they were! The greeny-blue curtains of light on the northern horizon. We decided we might have a better view up on the hill towards the mailbox, so we drove up there and watched some more. The lights would spike and send green runners up into the sky and then fade away. It was lovely, but not as impressive as some other Northern Light Shows we have seen in the past. Maybe tonight it will be even prettier. I wish I could have taken a picture of them for you, but I am not that savvy with night time photography so I'll share a few pics from Google with you. Here's a little blip on the Geomagnetic Storm that causes us to see the Northern Lights.
