Subject: RE: BS: seeing the Northern lights
Joe, you must have been in southeast Alaska! I tell people down south that they get far more full moons than we do- we can go for months without seeing one. That's how it is when you live in a temperate rain forest. To make up for it, it is beautiful and the air is moist and sweet and cool and breathable to your toes.
Like I said, if I were bent on seeing the Northern Lights I'd head north, where the skies are much more reliably clear.
During the peak years many Japanese come to the Alaska Interior for the viewing of the Lights. They say that it is a fortunate child that is conceived under the lights.
