Saturday Morning Movie: The Aurora Borealis
This is a real-time video of the aurora borealis ("Northern Lights") filmed back in January during a solar storm. Lovely images. I remember when I was very young, we saw something in the sky to the north that people said were the Northern Lights. The power of suggestion and the unreliability of memory (not to mention the location, in North Carolina) make me unsure if indeed what we saw was the aurora borealis, but I like to think we did.
