Ronee' writes about the auroras she saw last night with her family. Like my young character, I too, was dazzled by aurora's visit; she came down to Texas last night, and she may do so again tonight! Hope I get to see them again!

I am in awe over what we saw last night here in Nashville. We had a celestial treat in the northern skies last night, and what we saw thrilled me beyond words!

I am a lover of the aurora borealis (more commonly known as "The Northern Lights"), and they are caused by the Earth's magnetic rays; if some of these rays enter the Earth's atmosphere, they can cause bright, ribbon-like lights to appear in the skies. They are common in the northernmost parts of the world, in the Arctic Circle (think Alaska, Finland, Sweden, Norway, etc., or northern Canada, where auroral displays are more likely to be observed), but once in a while, there'll be a storm so strong the displays end up going further south, more than usual, and if you are lucky, you may see them as far south as Arizona, Texas, or even the Carolinas. I have seen the auroras several times here in Nashville, Tennessee (where I live), and I have also seen them in Alaska. (I went to Alaska on a cruise earlier this year, and let's just say the auroras were AMAZING!).

The auroras we saw last night were quite bright: they were moving across the northern skies like rippling curtains on a breezy day, and they turned all sorts of colors: red, pink, purple, white, blue, even yellow, but mostly they remained red or green. They were quite spectacular, and all of us were going like, WOW! Daddy and maman were so excited they were taking pictures of the auroras, and I am still talking about it today! It didn't help that we saw the movie, "The Polar Express"; there were auroras in that movie, and it just reminded me about last night; and according to Spaceweather, there MAY be more auroras tonight! I hope so; I love watching Aurora's magical dance in the northern skies! Auroras are too cool!~

I heard that they came from the way sunlight reflects off the ice caps. I remember seeing them in the country when I was small. Would love to see one again.

actually, auroras are caused by magnetic storms (flares) coming off the surface of the sun; if the energy particles released by these storms is facing earth, they get caught up in the magnetic rays (invisible to the eye) and bump into one another, especially at the north and south poles. once in a while, a storm will be massive, and those in southern climes will see the aurora; those living in northern lattitudes are more likely to see them (in season: spring and fall).

otherwise, an excellent write! enjoyed the lights we saw last night


(((HUGS))) and love, karla. :)
