WOW! Thank you for posting, Rev. Paul!!
You're welcome, ma'am. It's difficult to describe the surreal feeling of seeing the northern lights. They're HUGE, and - if you're close to any kind of civilization - they move in seeming silence. They fade, reappear, and sometimes change colors. Away from town, you realize they produce a faint humming sound. It's mesmerizing.
Very nice! And they can and do stretch from horizon to horizon!!!
Thanks - and yes, they can do that. It makes my neck sore, later, from having my head on a swivel. :)
When I lived in northern Minnesota, I woke my 4 young kids up in the middle of the night, bundled them up in heavy quilts and set them out in the yard so they could watch a northern lights display. They loved it. They thought it was magical. So did I.
I understand that sentiment, Vicki. It strikes most of us the same way.
I saw them a couple of times when I lived in Northern Illinois. It was "rare and unusual", but they do get that far South.....sometimes.
And ... sometimes ... they don't get this far south. But usually, they do. :) Srsly, though, I'm glad you got to see them. I saw 'em ONCE in east central MO, and freaked right out. Couldn't figure out what I was seeing, but it was bright green & covered nearly 50% of the horizon.
They are one of the few things that are on the bucket list I do not maintain. They seem amazing.
TB, they are amazing.
