Auroras


Once again, email has come to my rescue when I have nothing to post. I forgot to note where these photos were taken, but I think it was in Canada or the far north of the western US.

What a show the sky puts on!! I think it would be better than TV.

Judy,

I think these lights are the Aurora Borealis, also called the Northern Lights.

They were named for the Goddess of Dawn,Aurora, and the Greek name for the North Wind,Boreas.

The Cree Indian People called these lights "Dance of The Spirits."

Aren't they beautiful?

If you are extremely lucky you can see them in Scotland. I never have but would love to.

Reality is much better that reality tv, isn't it. S

Those are just awesome! I would love to see the Northern Lights, but the chances of me getting to northern Norway, or Canada are remote, so I shall just enjoy these beautiful photos!

I remember seeing a faint display when I was a child in Ohio but nothing like those pictures. Guess I should put Alaska on my "to do" list.

Interesting how the word "aurora" is like "aura." I read it as aura first. Supposedly we all have one. Halos?

Very beautiful. I miss the northern skies - but not the weather.

Bud gets the aurora borealis up at his place and it's pretty spectacular. These are great teepees, too!

Suddenly, I can post comments on Safari again....
There used to be a webcam from a place in Alaska and often there would be auroras on a nightly basis. Amazing! That is on my list of things to see before I die.

I've wanted to see these live and in person for years now.
What heavenly glory!! It's like God is finger painting.
