Aurora Borealis

  1. Oct 30, 2003 #1
    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.

    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.

    wow i wish i had seen some guy freaking out about it and yelling stuff about repenting...

    Oh wait my parents... hmm... well seeing a stranger do it would have been more interesting.
