    I can't believe something so beautiful can exist in the sky. I definitely need to see it.

    More Than Once

      Guess I've been fortunate to have actually seen this on a few occasions in the Lower 48.  Once, my wife and I were enjoying a romantic evening by the fireplace when I happened to look out the window and noticed a glow in the northern sky. We hurriedly grabbed...

    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.

    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".

    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?
