    Bucket List

    Add this one to my bucket list. In fact, its been on my list before I knew it was called a bucket list. The same goes for sky-diving. Hey, there is a sky-diving school just 10 miles from my house, so I better get moving, wouldn't you say?

    Again

    I have seen the aurora Borealis twice in my life and would like to see it again. It was an amazing light show. The first time was over Lake Erie. From the roof of my apartment building it looked like sheer curtains blowing in the wind against a black backdrop. That was truly...

    Me Too!

      I'd love to go to Alaska to see this phenomenon.  My husband and I have always talked about going there but we never seem to make it.  We go other places that don't have "the lights".

    My Aurora Borealis

    August 4th, 2007 arrival in the town of Alta, Norway. Accustomed as I was that night had gathered to other places, so 24 hours on 24 hours light illuminating us, so here the feeling was different: that special time of the day, we call twilight or dusk, kept up! The Sun as it...

    Nothing witty or sarcastic here.

    If there was such a thing as my bucket list. This would be on it. In fact, it would probably be it! The particles of the solar wind interacting with the poles of the Earth's magnetic field, or something. A spectacular show- magic some might say.

    Magnetic Sky Light!

     I live somewhere with too much LIGHT POLLUTION, so I have never been able to see it even if there was a flare. I've heard its very beautiful. Maybe someday I'll travel to somewhere where I can view it.

    More Than Once
