Default Aurora borealis slide show

Judy Russell fulfilled a life-long dream last Friday by seeing and photographing the northern lights in Fairbanks, Alaska. You can view the dramatic slide show here.

It was minus-28° F. You can read Judy’s comments about the weather and taking the photos on Tapcis in the “Cold. Cold cold cold cold cold…” thread.

That’s odd — I don’t see any movement in Safari or Firefox 3. Do you have another browser to check with?

They are wonderful photos, and they put on a good display for her.

If you look at the Tapcis thread, Sid found some other photos of the northern lights from above (i.e., from space) that are even more fabulous. But her shots, especially as a slide show, are beautiful.

I grew up with the lights (and with earthquakes and volcanoes) — didn’t know everyone didn’t get these things. Jack has seen the lights too, in Vermont. Do they show up anywhere in Europe? Must, if you go far enough north.

In Great Britain, certainly, though in Scotland mostly, in southern England occasionally.

I recall seeing the Aurora Australis once, as a child in the subtropics! The colours were different, however, being red to orange, if my memory serves me correctly. Maybe one of our New Zealand or Tasmanian members can refresh my memory on the colours.
