Northern Lights

Really cool! If you went out last night and go out tonight when it is dark, look to the north and you should be able to see the Northern Lights!!! Ryan and I saw it last night. It was very clear green in the sky. Andy told me that there was a coronal burst, in other words a sun spot exploded and shot stuff towards the Earth, and that is why we can see them.
Mom told me that tonight there will also be a meteor shower! Cool, huh?!
Outer space is really giving us a show!

  1. Jason B, my old roommate, and pilot was flying from Charlotte to Louisville and said he could see them really well. He was at about 22,000ft.
