- The Aurora Borealis
I shall never look at the sky in the same way again...
- Like many, I have always held a fascination and yearning to see the Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights) — a spectacular natural phenomenon created by the Solar Wind hitting the upper echelons of the Earth's atmosphere.
The night of my first sighting on 22nd January 2012 would change my outlook on the world forever.
Several months later, my spine still tingles whenever I think about my first sighting of the Aurora — you can read all about my experience in this blog post I wrote at the time.
I also collect pieces of Aurora paraphernalia, usually old prints and articles from the 1800s — I thought it might be good to gather my favourite photographs and other material into this Collection, which I'll no doubt add to over time...
Leave a comment if you've seen the Aurora Borealis or Australis — I'd love to hear of your experiences.
