Halló all , as you must know the are magnetic storms from sun
smasing on mother earth and the lights witch we can see are so
vááááá I don´t what else to say they are so fantastic her in
Iecland and I saw a picture from Alaska . the northern
light have a strange colors now some orange and red.
Well the winter has arrived here in Iceland with a little snow
and cold frost and winds so we had to change the wheels on our cars
the roads are slippery so we use nails in the tires.
So if anyone are planing to come to Iceland have allkind of
clothes with you the weather are very strange on this Island.
All the best from Skarpi Iceland Atsjú.... I am getting the
flue Atsjú....

Skarpi, here's a picture from Colorado, USA. There are more pictures of aurora here,
but some of them might be old (they're still pretty). And here is a slide show from Anchorage, Alaska!

Get well! I got a flu shot today.

Thanks for that, Skarpi. I'd been thinking it must be making quite a good show up there in the higher lattitudes. I missed out completely during my stint in Alaska a few years ago, but I caught a glimpse of some ethereal fireworks from the Antrim Plateau in the north of Northern Ireland last year.

Been a pretty good summer for the Aurora B. this year in Northern Ontario, Canada, Skarpi. But it was amazing last night. Not the best I've ever seen, but amazing still, even in town.

Our weatherman said we might see them last night.....I forgot to look! But since no one has mentioned them, I guess they weren't visible. I'll keep looking. We're having spectacular weather for the next five days...bright blue skies and temperatures in the high 70's.

Here is a gallery of recent aurora photos that NASA has collected. I haven't seen any from here in New Hampshire but I'm looking!
Skarpi, I remember my 90 minutes in Reykjavik airport in 1978, looking outside at the wind and snow. I have always wished I had spent a week or so in Iceland. I don't know why I didn't!

Skarpi, so good to hear from you! I haven't seen the lights here, but we used to see them in Wyoming and they were breathtaking!

Good health and a safe winter to you, my friend!

Skarpi,
    Tonight the sky over Cape Breton Island is alive with colour. There is a quarter moon in the sky that should set before long and the show should get even better then. At this latitude there isn't usually much colour to the Northern Lights but tonight they are pink to firey red.

Here in Maine tonight there is an incredible Northern Lights display. There's a center with giant arms radiating out in all directions.

Skarpi -

And driving home from work tonight (about an hour ago - 7 pm US Eastern zone), for the first time ever, I saw the Northern Lights not only in the North - they were actually as bright to the south of us - from open places you could see them all across the eastern half of the sky. The southeast was more red, the northeast more white - both with flashes of blue. Truly amazing!

Spectecular display, away from the town`s brightness and into the darkness of the countryside it brought me back to the fierce winter of 1947 and my father explaining to me the meaning of the aurora borealis.
There has been a very hard early frost in the north of Ireland, could the northern lights be the herald of a bad winter, such as 1947?. Ard Mhacha.

My 9 year old Daughter and I saw it last night while out trick or treating. We both stopped and watched the different hues of red spead over the sky. Was pretty spectacular. My Daughter is going to love hearing how people from other places were able to see the same site.
By the way We live in a small town in north east Indiana

Well, Balderdash! If they are being seen as far south as Oklahoma, I wish our skies would clear so I could get a look. Total cloud cover and crappy snow. Can you see them through/behind a cloud cover?

They have been visible in the Vancouver, BC area too this week. I checked the night sky here on the south end of Vancouver Island last night, but no dice. I'll either have to go to bed later or get up earlier. Saw a spectacular display of eerie green and yellow in August in the mountains outside of Banff a couple of years ago.

Geeze! Spectacular! This post got me to look up! Something we don't do in New York for fear of being mistaken for a tourest! There was this round white thing in the night sky, well, not completely round, kind of cresent! Glowing it was! With all the ambiant light from the city, I am not sure, but I think it was glowing! It was smaller than the sun, but ... well... it was something to see!
Cheers Skarpi!

Morning in New York... Hi Skarp. I looked up to where the big white cresent shaped light was, and it is now gone. Someone has tunred it off. I guess it was artificial. I am going to call our power company, Con Edision, and ask if they put the big light up in the sky last night.
Cheers

InOBU - LOL :) / Here in north-central Connecticut, more southerly latitute than some some other precincts reporting, my son & I viewed the aurora Thursday night between about 12:30 and 2:00 a.m. We went a ways into the countryside to get (somewhat) away from the light-domes. We saw greenish lights & curtain or "spiking" effects. It wasn't Spectacular, be we thought pretty darn good for this vicinity -- better than we had expected.

We here in Cornwall, England had a glimpse of the Northern lights on Wenedsday 29th October, it was at about 10.30 p.m., they were not overly spectacular, we last saw them here on the North Cornwall coast in 1997, and they were much better then, but still, the reds and orange hues were beautiful and I felt blessed to be lucky enough to see them. I would love to view them from Skarpi's perspective!

We at the 15th Street Quaker meeting got a glimpse of someone from Cornwall today. Rosina, I forget her last name and where in Cornwall she is from, other than it has a meetinghouse with a thatched roof. Still no northern lights, though the light of God in each of us...
Cheers to Cornwall and Iceland...

I have been gone for the past few weeks, but last night we saw Northern Lights over the mountains east of Anchorage. Beautiful greens and yellows and once a startling swirl of bright crimson came slashing across the sky. It was quite enjoyable. Nice to have the heavens welcome us home again.

I heard that they were great here in Vermont last Thursday, and probably were blazing away on Friday but we have had pretty steady cloud cover (and rain and more rain, and more rain) since Friday. Rats! Otherwise, it takes a very cold August night for us to get even the faintest of lights.
