Wow, I got to see some amazing stuff yesterday. On the way home last night from work, when the guy riding with me spotted an albino deer just behind a tree line not 50 yards from the road. Of course I had to pull a u-turn and go take a look. It was just a small doe, but it was still so cool to see. It's the first one I've seen in the wild. Stuck out like a sore thumb. And then later on I got a call from a buddy of mine telling me to go look at the sky. That was the first time in my life that I've seen the northern lights. The sky was mostly bright red, with a kind of baby blue light around it. Fucking amazing! I never understood what the hoopla was about until last night. Anyway, not often you get to see two things like that in the same day.

I advise you to stay in a safe place for a while.

Ya, I saw the lights for the first time in my 40 years as well. I guessed that what I was witnessing might have been the Aurora Borelis, but I wasn't sure. Given the current state of world affairs I was half way looking for a mushroom cloud to go with the red in the mid night sky. I can just imagine what thoughts primitive man would have seeing the sky turn red and green. It was indeed awesome. Hard to imagine the kind of energy pulse from the sun required to make a neon sign of our atmosphere. Heres a link for the folks that missed it. The photos from VA are very representative of what I witnessed. [url]http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/gallery_06nov01.html[/url]
