    Default Solar Tsunami (Solar Flares)

    Great opportunity to look at northern lights tonight.
    I might take out the camera if it's clear and see if I can capture some of this magic.

    I am looking forward to it if the weather holds up. I read about it at Discovery News.

    I bet it's going to be one stellar show here in Calgary. I looooooove the Northern Lights but I never see them because it's usually so light out at night this time of the year.

    Hubby was telling me about this last night. I'm hoping we're far enough north to see something.

    We didn't get to see anything, stupid clouds. I wonder if my inlaws got to see them since they're further north than we are.

    Our sky was clear, except for the smoke, but I could see through that. When I got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, I looked out the window, but there was nothing to see except stars.
