northern lights

As we were driving home from Vancouver on Sunday night, we were passing through Vanderhoof around 10:15pm. The sky was clear and there was a bright full moon, but even with that and all the city lights, we could see a ribbon of green across the sky. It wasn't really anything to get excited about. About 40 minutes later, though, as we were at Fraser Lake, there was suddenly a gorgeous display in the northern sky. There were green waves moving rather quickly, coming right down to the horizon and then to make it even more spectacular, some red streaks swirling through. I've never seen the red before. Too bad I can't get pictures of this stuff.
