Up until now, I’ve never seen the northern lights. It was actually on my bucket list to go somewhere in northern Canada specifically to see the magnificent show.
But Saturday night here in Vernon myself and other night owls were treated to an amazing display of lights in the sky. Aurora Borealis.
I was trying to live in the moment and not use my phone (plus anything taken on my camera would have looked like crap) but a friend of mine managed to grab some great shots of the greens and even the pinks that emerged after a few minutes of watching.
Unfortunately no one took video, but at one point the whole sky looked like it was dancing with colour. I’m so glad I got to experience this gas particle collision, that’s what Wikipedia calls it anyway.
If you didn’t get a chance to see the northern lights Saturday, here are a few photos courtesy of Paris Sanesh.
