Aurora Borealis playing NOW!

On the off chance any of you are awake right now, go outside and look north. If it's clear, you should be able to see the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. It's amazing! It kind of comes and goes in intensity, so if it seems faint, wait around a bit and it might get stronger. Right now it's greenish blue with some red farther up in the sky. This is something you rarely if ever see south of Canada--could be a once in a lifetime opportunity. And it's free!

If you're reading this in the morning, take a look tonight and check NASA's to see if things are looking active.

This was one of three things I wanted to see before I die. A whooping crane in the wild and the Cubs winning the World Series are the other two.
