Aurora and Leonids

Sleeping after a meal of chicken and noodles, I was awakened to Tammy shouting that the northern lights were outside and I should come with all due haste. I was skeptical at best. Aroused prematurely from my stupor, I stumbled about, trying to find something to wear. My eternal apologies to Tammy for ever doubting her.

I stepped out to find a wonderful green curtain of light. They danced, and brighened, and dimmed, and moved. I ran back to find something capable of capturing the event. I grabbed the camcorder and my camera (both sans tripod).

So, in an early November evening, Tammy, Nova and I enjoyed a very pretty show of aurora borealis, supplemented by 3 or 4 rather bright leonids.
