    Northern Lights

    If I head out of the city and look up at the sky I see one of natures pure simple pleasures cross over the sky.  The shear beauty and color as the northern lights flicker above me.  So I lay done on the roof of my car, lookup at the dark starry night and watch...

    When I was little I was sure the northern

    lights were really aliens invading. I was clearly born to be one of the tinfoil hat people.

    Northern Lights In Canada

    I've watched the Northern Lights through out my life. Minnesota is my home where I was born and raised.  It's almost common away from the city lights to watch this unbelievable show.  A few people would stop and gather to watch, but then be on their way. The most mind...

    Celestial Storms

    One of the most amazing things I've ever seen is the northern lights. A few nights ago they were awe inspiring, amazing, breath taking and dancing literally right above my head. Here are some shots taken by some local photographers. They don't really give the spectacle justice...

    Quick But Beautiful...

    A Short Glimpse

    Northern Lights

    I've only seen the northern lights once and that was in far northern California of all places back in 2003 (I think, but not sure).    Due to a solar flare on the sun the lights dipped down that far south.  To get away from the city lights I drove up to Shasta...

    In Yellowknife.

    My dad owns a cabin up in Yellowknife (Northern Canada for those who don't know). He usually just rents it out, but a couple times me and my family have gone up there for the winter. The unbelievably cold weather (Normal for Canada, hehe) is totally worth the lights. I remember...

    They Are Wonderous

    where i live I get to see them quite often but they are only green here. the city lights dim them down quite a bit but sometimes when they are flashing and dancing I will drive out of town to where it is dark to stare at them.

    My Heart Belongs to Alaska

    I lived in Fairbanks Alaska for 4 and a half years. I love it there. There is nothing better than sitting in the outdoor swiming area of Chena Hotsprings under the Northern lights and watching them flicker. x

    Very Lucky Me...

    I see Northern Lights every winter! I think it is because of where I live, Northern Ontario. They are so amazing. You can actually see them dance across the sky. A totally cool experience! I am very lucky to be able to see them every year.
