Todays Aurora Oval

Each day a map of the top of the world is posted . It is the Aurora Oval. Can you find where you are located in the oval? Even the most distant locations will have a light show . Weather permitting.

It seems funny to have all these modern conveniences to view the Northern lights.

We used to look for the lights after those bright crisp days in winter . The best time being at midnight. We were rarely disappointed.

Of course , we could always count on someone calling on the phone..." Are you watching the Northern Lights?" an excited voice cried out. And we would always race out to see what surprises it held this time.

It's funny how you never get tired of seeing them . Probably because they are never like the ones before. Always different. Always exciting.


  1. I would love to be able to see them in person...i doubt seeing them any other way really does them justice, I think I am probably going to have to enjoy the pictures and written descriptions though as I doubt it's a place I will get to see in person. You are very lucky.

  2. I'd love to be able to see the Northern Lights one day. I think I'm still too far south to get a good look though. I'll have to settle forthe more modern ways of seeing them.
