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

    Super jealous. Nothing better than seeing the aurora borealis.

    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.
