Delightful, remember watching a lot of these when younger in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We lived on the edge of the city with a lot fewer lights than there is now and we always were entertained by these lively light shows at night when these came our way.

what a wonder!
did you know (well i recently read, so it must be true) that a rainbow's existence depends on a viewer - no viewer, no rainbow. apparently it has something to do with the eye receiving the prismatic information. wonder if the same holds true for the aurora? makes you think...
