    Hey I'm with you alarson! I had to double check just now to make sure they weren't fake.

    Would have been pretty awesome to see in person. Drinking a few beers on the deck and watch them for a few hours would be ideal night during it.

    From one of our viewers in Grafton, IA.

    I actually went out for and hour and watched as well. Naked eye you could see all the green with a hint of purple.

    I also made this timelapse. http://vimeo.com/67457231

    If you look closely, the Northern Lights are also producing repeated flashes of small red dots on the left side. They seem to be in a repetitive manner. Maybe someone should check this out?

    Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
