Northern lights

Had dinner last night with a retired professor from U of Alaska Fairbanks. He is an atmospheric scientist. His description of the sun's corona explosions was spell binding. It is a rare occurrence to see the Northern Lights in Florida. Very cool that so many people got to see them this week. I will never forget camping one night up by the Arctic Circle in the fall. I got up to take a leak from the rented truck camper. Full display filled the sky in four colors with waving curtains of color. I woke up my friend and we watched the Aurora for 2 1/2 hours in the middle of the night. Nature-it's not what you think.
 
So glad so many saw the light(s). Great photos! Thanks for all of them.
I tried again last night to see the show but the weather was unwilling to unveil the sky. I did sit in my muskoka/adirondack chair on the old backporch to sit and sip quietly. Patiently. A fine drizzle gently wetted my face, clothing, and soul. A late Irish friend called this "soft weather". Indeed it was.
No brilliant colour wash above but nevertheless fulfilling within.
 
The only thing I saw was the Starlink satellite train. Had no idea what it was but the internet provided an answer.

The show in Alaska was phenomenal, I understand.
