Aurora Borealis...

Anyone located in the northern lattitudes should be on watch tonight…

There is supposed to be a pretty good show of Aurora Borealis (northern lights)…

I took these pictures last saturday night/sunday morning… It was quite the site, i could see my shadow from the lights… Anyone interested, its definitely worth a peek outside to see them!

Nice pictures, Tom!

Too bad I live in a fairly cityish area. :frowning: I know that friends of mine in the country have seen them.

When I was at a cottage about 3 weeks ago, there was an awesome aurora borealis. It was cool to see it disappear and then appear again like 5 minutes later! We also saw a huge shooting star go past (and yes I made a wish :P)
