Thread Name: BS: seeing the Northern lights
Subject: RE: BS: seeing the Northern lights
I first saw Northern Lights in the north of Norway. I remember a feeling of sensory confusion: that something so spectacular in size and motion was making no sound whatsoever. The folk tradition in Norway claims, among other things, that you risk bringing them down to earth if you wave a white scarf or sheet at them. Anyone feel like trying?

Lots of pictures here
