They have special tours in Alaska just for aurora-viewing.

The tours are HUGELY popular with the Japanese, or so I've read.

Shorter trip for most of them than for most of us in Canada and the US, I guess. And livelier than moon-viewing.

Hmm. The NASA pages seem to change. But in this thread Sid shows a fabulous image in his post.

I've seen them many times. Sometimes they don't amount to much except a glow in the sky. Other times they can be almost frightening, as their eerie colors bounce all over the sky.

Judy's pictures were more spectacular than what we usually get. But -28F? If we have Northern Lights when it's that cold, I look at them through a window in our darkened bathroom.<g>
