Main Question or Discussion Point

I can so totally see the aurora borealis from my window. I've never seen it before. It's so cool. I think i'm gonna get my guitar and go outside and play... its cold, but i always play for the full moon, figure the lights are just as special.

Sooooo Cool....

All I got here is a giant red glow in the sky.

it is always cloudy down here, if it not cloudy it is misty, if it is not misty, my window is all condensed with water

ok well... the red glow is the lights...

Somehow my crazy (like honestly nutso) parents can see all sorts of colors and shapes. I can't... but still. I've never seen the AB before, so least now i can say i have.

The very reason why there aren't any optic telescopes in the low lands.. but I heard last week that they are going to build the world's largest radio telescope right here in the Netherlands!!

Well, I just stepped out on break (hehehehe) a few minutes ago and noticed them for the first time.

Only, I didn't notice them. I noticed the guy running around in a panic acting like the sky was falling. I'm like, dude, whats wrong with you? He was telling me about god returning and we all had to repent, blah blah.

I tried calming him down to explain it was a result of yesterdays solar flare, but without much luck. I thought everyone knew about these things, but apparently not.

How ironic I come here and you've got a post about it.

Anyhow, I'm gonna take another break before to long and go get my camera, hopefully try to catch a few good pics of it.
