Some of you might like to know about things like this.  Should be a good couple of nights for spotting Aurora's.

A geomagnetic storm is underway on Thursday, May 23rd, after a
coronal mass ejection struck Earth's magnetic field earlier and with greater
energy than anticipated.  Sky watchers, especially those at high latitudes,
should be alert for auroras after local nightfall on Thursday.
Observers in, e.g., northern Europe, Canada and across the northern
tier of US states are favored, but mid-latitude observers might spot
something, too, if the storm continues and intensifies.  Visit
spaceweather.com for updates.

Early Sunday morning I'll be on top of the volcano in Muaii where all the telescopes are. Hopefully it'll still be going on and maybe the wife and I will get a treat. Either way, just the sunrise should be great.

I'm trying to think of a local mountain I can get to the top of around here.  Maybe I'll just cruise up to Mt Hood and do another night climb up the easy side.

There's nothing like watching the sun rise or a meteor shower from the top of mountain.

Hmmm, when deer hunting back in 90 we saw the Aurora as far south as Mid Northwest Oklahoma. Winter, and cold night. A crimson/burgandy color across the sky.

Back in the late 1950's during the days of atmospheric nuclear testing we saw the aurora borealis in Dallas.  As a child those red/burgundy curtains were amazing to me.  

Another time on a trans-Atlantic flight to avoid a storm we transited north near Greenland and got an incredible show of blue lights.

So that people will know that we were not poaching deer. We got to our stands at roughly 5:00am to get up before the deer got up.
We didn't take any deer.
Saw two Doe's though.
