Buffalo,....Caught some shooting stars, but no visible lights. I'm sure where you are there is a spectacular show and I wish I could have seen the lights. I personally am fascinated with anything astrological.:-)

Does anyone remember the last eclipse of the sun? I think it was in 90 or 91.....

    If you're in the Northern tier of states

    There is one heck of a Northern lights display going on right now. Here in Michigan the whole northern sky is shimmering and the glow extends all the way to the apex of the night sky. AWESOME!!

    Cloudy here in Anchorage

    But maybe it will clear up. Nothing like some nice ripply Northern Lights to make you want to just stop and stare at the sky.

    Dang Boston City Lights....

    Here at 42.28 degrees North we got... bupkes.

    What latitude are you, Steve? Where in MI?

    Last time I saw the Aurora Borealis was at an air base in Gander, Newfoundland in the mid-1970's...unforgetable. No photograph does them justice.

    Thanks for sharing though!

    Sky animation

    I'm looking out the window, it's red, it's green, it twinkles... hmm, whadyaknow, it's even musical. It's beautiful.

    My night sky here in Dayton is all lit up, though not with the same effect. We're waiting for Christmas.

    Our local TV weather guy has been telling us to look up too, but I can't see a thing that even remotely resembles his TV animations.

    I've always wanted to see this one day. Thanks, Steve, for the post.

    Wouldn't you just know it!! This year the guy up the road from me decides to decorate his house with enough lights to put Clark Griswold to shame!!!

    I have been lucky enough to see the lights on several occaissions. A few times here in NY and THE MOST SPECTACULAR display while I was in Craig, Montana fishing the Missouri river. That display lasted for a few nights. Mostly emerald green in color, but BRIGHT. Nothing like sitting by a dwindling fire after a long day of casting feathers tied to a hook at MONSTER trout, sipping an adult beverage, listening to the coyotes and watching God's light show.

    The guy up the road has 15 minutes before his power goes out.

    I leave for work

    about 4:45 in the morning. Wednesday I went out side and in about ten minutes I saw about six shooting stars.

    I wish I had the time to just sit and watch.
