Aurora Borealis – Nature’s “Cue One, GO”

The Telegraph posted some images of Aurora Borealis – or as most refer to them, “The Northern Lights.”  I have never had the pleasure of seeing this phenomenon, but my wife and I have a goal to save up for an Alaska trip to see them in the Northern night sky at some point in our lives.

Every image I see of the aurora makes me wonder how Solar winds flowing past the Earth can show such beauty.  They remind me of the first time I ever saw a moonbow, standing in the below freezing temperatures in Macomb, IL in 1997.
