New Moon in Libra

Wow, how pretty!

Somewhere in the skies of planet Earth last night, along with the New Moon in Libra, the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) was lighting up the sky -- a phenomenon that occurs only in the higher latitudes of our world, mostly during Spring and Autumn. (Click to the link up above to learn all the scientific info about it)...I have always wanted to see the Aurora Borealis and ages ago went to Iceland to chase it in the skies, but due to foggy weather, didn't see squat. No matter, until I get that chance again, I'll always have youtube...

Highlights of the Aurora Borealis from around the world (Don't worry, I only chose ones without the cheesy musical interludes...However, the third choice was unavoidable, as the video images are amazing -- so prepare perhaps with hitting mute before hand, although it's not totally crazy cheesy, but minorly so):
