Aurora Borealis Sightings

Sat Nov 01, 2003 12:00 am

Greetings,

We managed to have a light show in Boston last night. From my vantage point, on the South Shore, it looked like a shimmering red curtain. Folks in Brookline said it looked green.

Anyway, I was thrilled to have the (rare) opportunity to see one.

Have any of the rest of you seen the Northern Lights during this latest wave of solar flares?

I saw it over Connecticut twice last night for about 15 minutes each time....it was red/pink and green here. I managed to take some amazing pictures of it!! Glad it wasn't cloudy!
