    Weird Crap Aurora Borealis

    I would love to see the Northern Lights some day....

    What really stood out to me tho in regards to this video, was how there are stationary 'stars.'

    The points of light in the sky that don't move.

    The stars obviously move across the field of view but then there are a bunch that don't...

    Either they are geosynchronous orbiting satellites, space junk, or?

    You could supposedly see the Northern Lights as far south as where I live about 30 years ago, this was of course before light pollution went off the fucking deep end.

    Either an optical illusion or space junk. Stars don't travel in geosynchronous orbits...

    I've seen'em...kind of like a puddle of gas in the sky, IMO, and no more fascinating.

    Beautiful. Thanks, Steve.

    Hey ICY, I hear they look amazing through the shimmering water of a toilet bowl.

    They're awesome here in Vermont. Makes the Who's laser light show look like kids with flashlights.

    When I worked in Edmonton, i had a gig out in the middle of nowhere watching a warehouse for Clarke transport. (It was really cool. Big enough to fit in a dozen box cars in, and I got to drive a train.)
    Anyways, one night i was out patrolling the yard, and I looked up in time to see some Aurora Borealis. It looked like a shimmering blue/purple/green dragon slithering across the sky. Really fucking cool, wished I had a camera to capture it.
