Well, this was pretty amazing....I was just walking home from work, I'd say about an hour ago (which would have been about 3:45am Eastern time), and just as I was about to walk in the door, I looked to the north, and after a few minutes of thinking "what in the blue hell is that in the sky?", I realized, I have just seen the aurora borealis, aka Northern Lights.........absolutely beautiful, with streaks of white and green in the night sky......first time I've ever happened to see that!

I am near Detroit, Michigan in case anyone wonders...

We do not see them in the UK ;-(


you can - but you need to be up high above the phosphor glow of streetlighting

and also (apparently) they're quite viewable from scotland

When is the best time to look for aurorae?
The best time of night is around midnight when the sky is at its darkest.

I'd love to see an aurora borealis before I die.

Not like I'm going to do any sooner, but you never know.

Madam, you have between your legs an instrument capable of giving pleasure to thousands and all you can do is scratch it.

Heh, so long as it's not in your kitchen. Contained entirely in your kitchen, that is.

Anyway, it's only a northern song.
