i was fortunate last night. my friend Hrönn lent me a car so i would not freeze, the night sky was clear, there was little wind, and the northern lights came out in force. pictures simply do not do justice to the beauty of the lights. they appear everywhere in the sky. no matter where you look the lights are out and sometimes they dance around each other creating a colorful show that lights up the night. it is a sight that few people see. i am happy to say i did, and hope that i can share at least a sense of it with you here. the video at the end is not very good, the camera i had is not good for video, but i hope it gives you a small glimpse of what happened last night in the sky.
