Just a few minutes ago a friend of mine up in Newmarket told me to go look at the sky. I called him crazy, but he insisted.
I looked out my front window (which appropriately faces north) and saw something I have NEVER in my life (to my recolection) seen before… the Aurora Borealis.
To me, being pretty far south, it is appearing as a very faint green cloud/puff, but its definitly moving. Up in Newmarket, my friend tells me, its covering about 70% of the sky. I’m told it very rarely stretches this far down.
I’ll see if my digital camera will agree to take some pictures of it, but with the lamp posts outside my house I might have a real hard time getting it to focus.
