I compare seeing Aurorae to seeing a movie star (keeping in line with the Golden Globes theme LOL). :-) Personally, I'd rather see Aurorae. :)

Be on the lookout.
Aurorae may be dancing
overhead tonight.
There are some rumors
She may be coming to town
Later this evening.
There's also that chance
That what I had heard is false.
Only conjecture.
But the excitement!
What if she really showed up?
Wouldn't that be cool?
I'm going to go.
What's the worst that could happen?
So she doesn't show.
But if she does--WOW!
I can say that I saw her!
She rarely comes here.
Will the curtains part?
Will she make an appearance
On a red carpet?
Will her dress be green?
Or will she be wearing white?
One way to find out!

According to, two Coronal Mass Ejections, or CME's, exploded from the sun's surface.  One yesterday, one today. 

Basically, a CME is hot gas (over one million degrees Centigrade) that is ejected from the sun's outer atmosphere, called the Corona.

CME's are thought to be the cause behind the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and Aurora Australis (Southern Lights).

Depending on your location, the more severe the CME, the further south Aurorae will be seen.  Texas, where I live, is considered "low altitude."  If issues an Aurora Alert for low altitudes, I'll know to go outside and look up if it is clear.

The gas, spewed out as solar particles, can severely influence the Earth's geomagnetic activity.  Extremely violent explosions can seriously disrupt radio, satallite and television communication systems and can even cause power outages.

The Skywatcher will be watching.  :-)  Strong Aurorae are likely, says, tonight AND tomorrow night.  Hopefully, she will dance overhead in my area!  I won't know unless I go outside and LOOK UP!  :-)

I always excitedly anticipate and look for this epic star's arrival when I venture to the northland - and she's made a guest appearance numerous times - but I sure wish I could get her autograph - that would be something!

I like to think of the aurorae as Mother Earth's central nervous system... much enjoyed this one, Karla.

Now THIS is cool! :) Personally, I'd rather see Aurora rather than any old movie or music star (with the exception of, well, let's say Loretta Lynn LOL). :) Your writing is soaring--keep it going!

(((HUGS))) and love, your twin sister, Karen Lynn. :D
