I'd love to experience seeing these lights from some advantage view point but for now the pictures will have to do for myself..They beautiful as they are mysterious.

The how these take place is what caught my attention. Perhaps I have read/heard how before somewhere and forgotten the details but this time I don't think I will forget. Very interesting to me, more so than ever before actually....beyond that of their beauty and almost eerie presence in what would otherwise be seen in a 'nomal' sky.

Stunning. I've seen the northern lights a few times here in Maine, but never like that.

I've never lived in an area where I could observe it but have always wished I could. Instead of looking at pics online over the years maybe one day I'll visit where I can see it for real :)

Thanks for the photos Jae. We live in Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory, and athough there are northern lights tours and photographers chase them I can honestly admit that I have not yet seen them this year! Maybe I am going to bed too early!!! In June on the 21st (summer solstice) there is very little night and it seems that the sun just sets and then rises again. I do notice the amazing skies and the amazing light. I highly recommend visiting the north.

Noted. Mother Nature at her most beautiful. I wish I could be there in person. Thanks for the beauty, Jae. We all need to stop & look at something like this once in a while.
