Last night at about 8:00 pm, after visiting my brother in his downtown home, my husband and I left his house and started heading towards the car. I happened to look up. Neither of us had seen northern lights before, but we had a hunch. My husband ran in to get my brother and his three kids. My brother had seen them before on trips to northern Canada, so he was able to confirm that they were indeed northern lights. For the next 10 or 15 minutes, we looked at the sky with craned necks, and all we could say was "oooh" "aaah!" "wow!" "look over there!" They were a like a moving, dancing, wispy, curtain of light, sometimes green, sometimes white, occasional hints of pink. Sometimes they would coalesce into bands of intense light, sometimes they looked like streaming rays. At times they covered as much as 75% of the sky. It was though celestial beings were taking shimmering scarves and waving them in a gentle breeze. Beautiful. Magical. I just can't do them justice with words. It's rare to see them so far south. After we got home, my husband checked the internet and found that a lot of people had reported sightings. There were reports from as far west as Minnesota and as far south as Tennessee. Lots of people in Illinois, Ohio, and Wisconsin posted their reports. Some people in England, Sweden and Poland reported activity, but their view was hampered somewhat by cloudcover. What a wonderful end to the evening. Did anyone here in Priuschatland see them?
