Years ago when I lived in northern Minnesota I was lucky enough to see Northern Lights now and again. They were beautiful, but not near as spectacular as these photos. Thank you.

You're welcome, ma'am. Glad you like 'em!

Absolutely beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing. I caught a glimmer of the northern lights one night on my way home from work in the far north eastern corner of CA. Green dancing curtains.....I almost drove off the road and wrecked my car. It was breathtaking.

Such a different surreal world that we down here never experience. That picture of the aurora flowing above the pipeline. Mankind's technological blip contrasted to those timeless - only recently understood - lights.

Rev. Paul said...

Tewshooz, first time I saw 'em, did the exact same thing.

Cathy, I knew you (and threecollie) would get the poetry flowing. Thank YOU for that.

The Fox one was really kewl. I have a thing for Foxes, must be the red hair I suspect :)

Rev. Paul said...

You're welcome, Sandy - and you're right.

Preppy, I like that one, too. Probably is the redhead. :)

Purty! I remember seeing them in Eielson and Thule and they were bright enough to read by...

Rev. Paul said...

They're that bright here too, NFO ... well, sometimes. :)
