    Stepped outside to look for them last night about 2AM, it was a little cloudy and a little too much light pollutioni to be sure... thought I saw something flickering off to the north. Might drive out of town a bit tonight to see what I can see.

    I was really jazzed about seeing them... but it was raining here, totally cloud covered. Back to my nightly shooting star watch.........

    I lived near Fairbanks for a while and I saw the Aurora almost every day driving to work and then driving home. Mostly blue/green colors. One winter night, my wife wakes me up around 1 in the morning and says we have to go outside. We dress in the full up "Nanook of the Arctic" gear to face the -40 temps and end up laying in the driveway for an hour watching the northern lights. The standard blue/green patterns had been replaced by reds, pinks, and purple. Very, very cool.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.
