Aurora Alert!

Tonight and tomorrow, there should be auroras visible much much farther south than normal. According to Universe Today you should see Auroras in most US states north of the southern tier of states. Unless they are exaggerating. Worth a look.

    I saw one on a plane ride in winter while over Greenland.
    very faint.

    I should mention, of course, that the evening Amanda and I got married, the sky was blanketed in a bright aurora so our guests went outside danced and chatted and hung out under the vast sheets of ionized air. Mainly blue.

    My brother in law who is a unspectacular good astronomical photographer managed to film it. Or was that my sister who is a spectacularly good nature photographer. Anyway, we have it on video.

    Auroras have an additional beauty that few are aware of: the radio emissions they create. The eery audio and video are worth a watch.
