GUEST,TJ BS: seeing the Northern lights (53* d) RE: BS: seeing the Northern lights 08 Apr 06


I saw my first and thusfar only display a couple years ago in Newburyport, Massachusetts, while (of all things) on my way to a Richard Thompson concert. At first I thought that the red glow rising up from the horizon must have been coming from a big fire somewhere, but when I pulled into the parking lot and had a chance to watch it undistracted I became aware of the shifting and moving and flashing hints of other colors, a very different thing from fireglow. It was an amazing sight, and quite a few other concertgoers were also standing in the parking lot admiring it. Auroras do occur a few times a year this far south, but living where I do in the middle of the city they tend to get obstructed by artificial lights. I'd love to see one again.
