Nature's light show

Anybody see the Aurora Borealis last night (11-7)?
There was a huge and long lasting display all night, visible across the US, from NC north and also visible in Europe. A guy in Australia also posted that the Aurora Australis was active also. The Sun is extremely active right now and more auroral displays are likely for the next couple of nights.

It was beautiful from what I could see. The city lights made it a bit more difficult to see, but the greenish hue in the sky was still very prominent.
The next time I notice some, I want to go out to the country and view them in all their glory. Nature's phenomenons amaze me.

We viewed the lights as well and fortunately we live in the country so there was no light pollution. The best display I've seen!

I guess I should have clarified this, film as in a movie type of film. It doesn't film as well as the eye sees it. Dan

I was on my way home from near harrisburg and the whole way heading east I saw the lights. They where to the north over the top of the mt's. Green and red show. It was really nice to see something that is rare. I talked to someone today that said around here it only happens about every 15 years and this was more rare because we are in the center of that time period right now. I enjoyed it always a sucker for those things lol.

Man you're makin me homesick for Alaska now. I'm pretty sure we don't get them in Tejas but the solar flares that make em good also mess up communications. Must be why my sattelite tv has been all wacky the last couple days
