It is cool to see. Pictures and/or video, just don't do it justice.

I hope you have a clear sky there tonight.

Thanks for the reminder! I meant to post after you told me about it yesterday, but never got to it.

 

I have the '75 1614 PK in position and ready for a great picture. I hope...

A few years ago, I was out for a late night snowmobile ride out on the lake.

No interfering light pollution for miles.

The Northern lights where so amazing, I raced back home, got the wife outta bed and

dragged her out to see them.

She actually thanked me for dragging her out of the warm bed.

Some years ago, I was up by boat to great Tancook island. When I got up to check my anchor in the middle of the the night, I saw the most amazing Northern lights! I thought wow! This is great! When I got to Halifax , and meet my cousin, I mentioned it.
I thought he must see this all the time? He said he had never seen it before!

Right after I typed my last reply, I went outside and the clouds are coming in fast from the west and I can't even see the moon now :(

It can last for a long time. Most of the night. Until the sun starts coming up!
It just pulsates!
