Aurora Borealis


A week ago I was setting in the living room on my computer and I looked up out the window and saw a strange sight. The sun was setting but the rays were reflecting on the pond and ground. It was like the light had glitter sparkeling in it. It is the closes thing that I  think of to describe it. The light moved like nothing that I had ever seen before.  It was absolutely gorgeous. I got up put on a warm jacket and went outside. I will have to say it was almost a spiritual experience. I don’t think you can catch the true majesty of  the Aurora Borealis with a camera. I have seen photo and film of it, but seeing it for yourself made me at a loss for words. I caught my first glance of the Aurora Borealis. My camera was incapable of capturing this phenomena.

A few days later I had a doctor appointment. I enjoy reading the newspapers and magazines, while I wait. The headlines read that this month the Aurora Borealis can be seen a far south as  the southern most tip of Sweden. Photos are flooding the web. This is unusual phenomena that we can see it so far south. The best time to see it is at sunset. It is usually fluorescent pink or flourescent green. We should be able to see it through the month of October. Needless to say when the weather permits I make point to go outside and enjoy God’s light show.

  1. Oh Honey…I am so pleased for you! That must have been so amazing. I think your photo is lovely and I really think you managed to convey, so beautifully, the awe and majesty of this wonderful experience. It must have been so magical, a little gift just for you.

    • Hubby took the picture in this post, so I can not take credit for it. You are right it did feel like a gift just for me.Seeing the Aurora boralis was on my bucket list and now I can check that off. I always thought that you would see it at night in laplands not during sunset at home.

      • I have known people who have paid a lot of money to take a holiday to see it and have come back having seen nothing at all. So pleased for you.

      • It is such a shame your friends didn’t get to see it. I realize that traveling to see the Northren lights does not gaurantee that you will see them. It is like going whale watching and no whales show up. That is what makes it so special.

        You can imagine my surprise at seeing it in an area that is not exist here normally.
