Last Night’s Northern Lights

Phantom Menace - 2013 © Christopher Martin

The Aurora Borealis lit up for a couple of hours last night so Jack and I were out until 5 AM watching the ribbons stripe the night sky.  There were few clouds and it turned out to be a very enjoyable performance.

A few images from the same night can be seen at this post.

    My 7 yr old son was just watching the How to train your dragon movie, there is a part where the main dragon, Toothless, flies above the clouds and you can see the norhern lights. My son would not believe it was real until I showed him your fantastic photos. He was totally amazed. Thank you for sharing these wonderful images and enlightening my son to one of the true wonders of this beautiful planet.
