Simply amazing. I always love seeing the Aurora, reminds me of the beauty and power of the nature.

I think this video made by Tesophotography also suits the thread well

Gorgeous! My ancestors came from Norway, I always enjoy seeing photos from there.

S & F!

Off to check the Sunweather sites; we must be having a really strong solar storm.

Edited to add, Yup: spaceweather

I always wondered, is it a crap shoot if you go on vacation to a part of the world that has "northern lights" type shows? Is there a time of year for peak northern lights? I would love to go see this one day, it's on my bucket list, but I wonder if it's just the luck of the draw when you're there... Or is it probably smart to schedule a vacation right after the sun starts acting up creating solar-like storms?

Yo Jhn, you're in Chicago, right? You just need to go spend a weekend in the nothwoods of Wisconsin or the UP. Best time is in the late summer or fall, or in the spring. I'd say in September. But, yeah, your best bet would be to head up there after you see one of those solar storm warnings.

I saw the most spectacular northern lights once when I was a kid and I've never seen anything like it since. I even remember the date because at first, being a freshman in high school, I wasn't even sure it really was northern lights. It was September 11, 1985. The lights were of all different colors from green, blue, red, and they were all dancing in motion from one end of the sky to the other. I was in Northwest WI. The lights were from the northern horizon all the way to the southern horizon and all meeting in a cone right above me. I went into the house and turned on the radio and the DJ out of Duluth, MN was talking about it and telling his listeners to get outside and check it out. It truly was amazing and I've always hoped to see them that bright again but I never have. Over the years, I've searched on the web for that date to correlate with any significant strong solar storms and I've never seen any mention of that date.

Anyways, just drive about four hours north of Chicago the next time you see one of those solar flares shoot out towards the good ole Earth, and you'll probably catch a pretty nice show.

Nice, I saw it once over in Østfold. It was faint, but there. It was also the first time I have experienced it.

That's beautiful, thank you.

I saw this show on the weather channel that talked about them, and how they come from the sun. They said its one way to see how our little (seemingly isolated world) interacts with the vastness of space, and the universe. Viewing those images through that lens makes them all the more awesome: these are photographs of earth interacting with vast cosmic forces!

Fake. Obviously.
Nothing real could be that pretty.

Hey Rezlooper, yes I'm in Chicago... That's a great idea, not sure why I didn't think about that. I can get up to the UP (driving) in 6-8 hours depending on traffic. I'm going to have to make a vacation out of it. Great idea, thanks!

Depends on where you live...just go to the local coffee shop and buy northern lights, smoke it and you will see them


Just joking
The real northern lights on the other hand...It truly must be amazing thing to see.

How utterly beautiful!

I am blessed as being one of the few people who has seen the aurora as far south as northern England. It was very faint and was probably about 40 years ago but the image was burned into my mind. S+F.
