I walked home last night with a friend and we were caught up in conversation when I happened to look over my shoulder and noticed the dancing aurora borealis above us. With out any warning or fanfare, just a beautiful wavy line of green curtains on display, patiently waiting for us to notice. It took me a minute to realize I actually had my camera, so I was able to get a few shots.
It was a special night. There is nothing in the world like standing in the cold, underneath a completely unanticipated lights display, just marveling at the sheer wonder of this event.
