Now, that’s a pretty sight. Thanks for sharing Lynette. Allan
We have been having some gorgeous ones lately, including some pinky-reddish ones, but I wasn’t quick enough to get photos of those.
The Aurora is literally the best show, but it’s above the earth!
Oh yes! That’s one of the beautiful things about the north.
Agreed – it is really is such a fantastic show; there’s nothing human made that can compare!
Wow – that’s beautiful!
The north is really a light-master, and the Aurora is its best display!
I’ve heard that you can occasionally see the northnern lights from where we are (northeast US) but I’ve never actually known it to happen.
I’ve been lucky enough to see them in northern Massachusetts and where I live in central Vermont. There was one unforgettable occasion when I had a display all the way from Greenfield, MA to Ascutney, VT – and then sat on my deck until I got too tired to watch any longer!
Wow! That’s fantastic. I was lucky enough to see the lunar eclipse earlier this week. We were confused about what we were looking for and I couldn’t understand why it wasn’t a full moon (at 5:45 am). Now I get it!
Watching the night skies for interesting events (such as an eclipse) is so tranquil and calming, I find. Sometimes it’s not possible because of work, though. I have to have my zzzs. 🙂
Yes, true enough. 🙂
They tend to be a bit washed out when they reach further south, although the US has been known to get fairly bright ones from time to time, mostly in the summer or autumn when the sky is clear. I hope you’re able to get a good view some time.
I may need to travel north!
Lots of people travel north for the lights. I know of one tour operator who uses glass domes for viewing the lights at night. Here’s some info (just for fun). https://auroravillage.com/
Wow that’s super interesting, Lynette! I enjoyed looking through the site. 🙂
I know they are electrical; do they affect the instrumentation in your aircraft, or are they too distant?
Not at all. The Aurora is at an altitude of about 90-150 km (56-93 mi), much higher than any aircraft flies. That said, flying through the Aurora would be dangerous if it were possible. It does cause issues with satellites occasionally. Cheers.
Yes, the northern lights are spectacular. 🙂
So pretty. I’ve only ever seen the northern lights once before, and that was when I were flying to Iceland in 2016.
Yes, Iceland has fantastic Northern Lights as well. I once saw them in Reykjavik during December, so it was very dark and they stood out so well. Such an amazing show.
