My gosh! Tell me if the aurora borealis is this spectacular in Finland! I know it's awesome in the Yukon, but this rocks!

It's always awesome here, although the reddish tint is a bit rare.. I guess the recent sun-activites are kind of responsible.
Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

Yep. Sky is burning and I can download things on 2 Kb/s... Damn those solarwinds! Hey... Why I watch black screen with little letters when I could watch all those fabulous northern lights? Hmmm....

I love the aurora borealis ... There's a machinae supremacy song called Northern Lights, actually ... But i guess that's something for the next album...

(We already have something like 6 songs for the next one, hehe... )


It's my job to keep SID elite.

Oh wow, so coooool!  I can barely even imagine seeing something so beautiful that's just happening in the sky all by itself. Man, I'd be staring at the sky all the time!
I know the solar storms on the sun made the aurora borealis even more spectacular, I hope you guys get to watch this "show" quite often.

A song called Northern Lights? That's going to be fabulous! I hope it has to do with AB :D

How humble and yet so fortunate Mother Nature can make me (us) feel.

If you didn't already, go to the link and look at the slideshow of the AB and the sun storms! Here's another pic:

Yeah, one day (or night) I was outside smoking me pipe, and I yawned, and saw it:

The whole sky was on fire! Green and purple auroras swirling across the sky, endlesly going forward so fast that even superman couldn't catch them. And I mean it, the whole sky was full of 'em.

I must've looked crazy, standing there in the middle of the yard, head up and O_O look on my face.

Uuh... pie?

Yea that would be something to experiance for yourself. The closest thing that I have seen it a redish moon. And when the bush fires where up in canberra (4-5 hours from sydney) the whole sky turned a goldy color. Everything went gold including my house.
