Northern Lights

Really, I have no words. Simply amazing. I went to a dark and empty playground, looked up 'til my neck was sore, then lay on my back on a swinging bridge, and just took it all in for awhile.

It was lovely having them all to myself, but at the same time I wanted to call everyone I knew. I wanted to knock on my neighbors' doors and drag them outside, get your kids out of bed, this is cool!

I restrained myself, because it's 20 minutes to midnight. But I'm glad I saw them. Thanks for calling me, thatguychuck.

(No, I didn't take this picture. But it looked fairly a lot like this. Not quite as bright, in the city, but still awesome.)
