Thanks to an alert from SpaceWeather.com, last night I was treated to a display of the aurora borealis.
It must be Aurora season. Last night for the second time in nine days, I saw the Northern Lights. Unfortunately, this time I was closer to the Milwaukee metro area, so the display was subdued quite a bit by city lights, but there were definite streaks of red and green visible from my house. In case you missed it, the SpaceWeather.com site has some spectacular pictures of last night’s display in their Aurora Gallery.
Last night I was outside around midnight, and saw the Aurora Borealis. Words cannot describe what an amazing sight that is. It was the second time in my life I’ve seen the Northern Lights. Although they didn’t fill up as much of the sky as the first time I saw them, last night’s aurora did have more brilliant color (streaks of deep red) than my first aurora experience.
