Porkcocker: you were probably humping a G4 or trying to find a way to have sex with a PowerCube. whatever you were doing, it wasn't with a woman

My friend Bob Haler took these pics of the aurora from Kansas City.

Man. I wish they were like that here.

I'm moved by the photos- I dunno how I would've reacted if I'd been there to witness a few of the more decorative ones.

You stated that: "Beautiful! Now if everyday could be like that :)"

I understand your sentiments, however, if you had your wish concerning this phenomenon, then it would be considered as only being "normal" and "ordinary."

Here in Alaska, the sky was glowing entirely red, ! to the South ! Very uncommon.

I've only seen them ONCE over here, just outside Toronto.

I wish they'd come back.

Very true Warren.

Warren Peese:

Lots of everyday things are beautiful however, just get a shot of sunsets or rainbows or what you will. Rare just means more "special", that's all, but no one cares about that right?

Do you think God invented the aurora borealis the same day 'he invented peyote?
