Ohh, now I have to write and dig myself out of a hole that it isn't because of my guests, is that right?
It isn't - obviously, but it's also something very difficult to explain. But for about an hour from 9pm, the lights were just extraordinary beyond any words or any photos - really - you cannot imagine, and by the time they had calmed down - for about a half hour, it was like feeling the ultimate emotional drain. I was completely exhausted, physically also. It was the strangest sensation.
This, the aurora, it's really an otherworldly experience when you're immersed into it. I think you'll just have to take my word for it, or come experience it for yourself - when you time it with the beginning of a high speed solar wind stream - because I promise you, there is nothing else like it.
