While the northern United States got treated to a spectacular light show, some of it was visible over the northern horizon near where I live.
So, past midnight last night, my dad and drove to a more open area and looked out at the night sky. Just on the farthest horizon, occasional streaks, lines, or points of white, red, orange, or green would dance across the sky, most of it barely noticeable. We were there for perhaps 45 minutes pointing out some of the larger Aurora. It's a spectacle that was beautiful when visible, but I never thought that I'd see it this side of a trip to the state of Alaska.
