So I crossed seeing northern lights in person off my bucket list last night. Although I am not sure I ever imagined it would be via a plane.

It amazes me that I was the only one probably who even noticed what was going on outside (plane lights were on, and it wasn't particularly bright, thank god, being on a plane and how close to us they were, I would be a little worried if they were).

They looked green straight lines, like edges of a curtain in S shapes or vague circles in places, in others just like somebody sketched green light on air. Sometimes there would be a bright flare somewhere that slowly slides, and moved the whole thing like curtains. We flew away from it but the cloudy green was there at the horizon for a long time.

... and no, no photos unfortunately. I didn't have my camera with me (my phone is horrible on low light) plus even if I did with reflections from inside it wouldn't have worked. Oh well, maybe there will be a next time...

Now I really want to see them from below through.

Oh, so jealous! I don't have a bucket list, but if I did...

Awesome! I would love to see them someday.

(Surprisingly, I actually have an appropriate icon for this.)

Sorry it took me forever to reply to this! DW or e-mail are the best ways to reach me. I am really enjoying Series 9 so far. :)
