Sun storms

Apparently the northern light auroras have been incredible lately, flaring up and producing spectacular displays over the weekend. The solar storms, likened to tornados, causing this display were recently captured by NASA. I’ve always wanted to see the northern lights, which apparently are going to peak in 2013. It’s one of the appeals of a trip to Alaska, but I usually find myself looking in a more equatorial direction for our vacations. Perhaps this summer or next we’ll try to time a trip to align with a solar storm. Wouldn’t seeing this in person be amazing?!
