Light of Another Color

I was out till 9:30 tonight ( that would have been last night) watching the Northern Lights. My son called to say that a large geomagnetic storm was under way - so I headed into Michigan farm country and watched the green curtains roiling and the northern horizon glowing as it never does. Two geminid meteorites streamed through the apparition. I didn't have my camera. The picture above was a result of the ash that drifted east from the Mt. Saint Helen eruption back in 1980. How the years fly.

I've seen the Northern Lights on only a few occasions back in Montana. They are mesmerizing. There is so much about life and the world that I do not understand, such as this phenomenon. How delightful, that you 'followed your bliss'to see them.

I've seen the Northern Lights here in Montana. They are absolutely amazing. I am so glad you got to see them.

Now what do we have to do to get you to carry your camera with you? :-)

Ha! What will it take to remind me to grab my camera? How about a younger brain:0)

Haha! Do we need to tie a string around your finger or will you be like me and wonder why the string is there?
