    I Want To See The Aurora Borealis Again!!

    I lived in the northern part of Canada so I have a first hand experience of the Northern Lights. I must say they are amazingly breath taking. To see the colours dancing right above your head is soooo amazing. When I first arrived there I would wake up every night for an hour or...

    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...

    I Have to See It to Believe It

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

    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.

    A Bucket List Item

    How totally awesome would this be?! The pictures always look so beautiful.  It's really hard to imagine.

    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.

    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?

    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".
