Aurora Sunday

AURORAS IN THE USA: Friday the 13th was a lucky day … for auroras. A high-speed solar wind stream sparked moderately-strong G2-class geomagnetic storms, pushing Northern Lights across the Canadian border into at least half a dozen US states. Thomas J. Spence sends this picture from Schroeder, Minnesota:

“Friday the 13th auroras! Just after sunset, auroras were visible to the naked eye,” says Spence. “After a sweet pass from the international Space Station in the west, I turned to the north to see the luminous arc rising. It exploded into color and pillars for a few brief minutes.”

So far, we have received photos of the US display from MichiganWisconsinWashington, and Minnesota. Monitor the real-time photo gallery for more sightings.

    Yesterday…regarding Dr. B’s unnice people museum comment:

    Ah yes, Heinz Alfred Kissinger comes to mind ..the Nobel Peace Prize winner who some believe should be brought up on charges for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and for offenses against common or customary or international law, including to commit murder, kidnap, and torture.

    Yet..U.S. presidents (both parties) sought his advice.

    Company came and is gone, nurse checked up on Bob and peace reigns. I’m almost caught up with my internet rounds, I have MSNBC on in the LR. While Bob was up most of the day and into the night yesterday, today he’s back to sleeping. Finally ate a little applesauce.

    Rained its brains out yesterday. Now it NEVER stops raining. When I get a chance, I’ll mow. I better start wrapping things up for the winter, too, putting my outdoor things away. It’s kind of cold now, I think it’s 49° out there. I’m also thinking it’s time to put a sweater on in here, lol.
