Northern lights

Remote Canada town a hub for Northern Lights seekers.

If I weren't spending the next several months running all over creation, I'd visit Yellowknife as soon as possible. Perhaps next winter.

I've seen the aurora borealis once, from an airplane en route to Frankfurt. It is the most phenomenal sight, a curtain of light rippling in the sky. Words can in no way do it justice, nor do photos capture what it really looks like. It is eerie; it is magnificent.

It's something I'd really love to see again, just to sit and watch for a time.

Go listen to some good music: "Northern Lights" from the album Tales of 1001 Nights by Renaissance.
