or, Pictures I Didn't take.


While compared to last winter there have been few auroras on display the ones that I have seen have been pretty much amazing. One night in particular I could swore I was heaven, as green streamed across the sky, a wayward river tumbling across the darkened sky.

Not auroras. This was taken two days ago by DJ Jennings. This is what happens when the lights of our buildings meet an air that is filled with ice crystals. It looks like the inside of a cathedral.

These are the things I love about winter up here in AK. When the light beam up like that it's easy to imagine I'm in some futuristic world (or perhaps being abducted). Can't wait until I can see the aurora again here - the constant light kinda mucks that up right now.
