122. Auroras

Ever since I was little I have wanted to see the northern lights. I have only seen a few here, and nothing like you see in the photos. A few times I have seen what looks like a hard-to-see greenish arch across the sky. The best auroras I have seen were years ago from an airplane while over Minnesota. This may be a bad winter for them; winters vary in an 11 year cycle, based on sunspots. 2 years ago was the best year in the cycle.
If anyone from Deering reads this - If you see northern lights, please call me to let me know. I don't care what time of the night it is. Really. Thanks!!

And if you manage to see them, please post some pictures on your site, so us Jews under the Southern Cross can see them too :-)
