So glad you were awakened, and that you both noticed and took the time to photograph this amazing display. Thanks for sharing!

(ps - keep warm!)

It is only a small % of the world's population that ever gets to see these displays. Now with you in the far North we look forward to more of these fine shots.

Wow, really good catch Ira.

Looking forward for more, and I don't mean just Auroras. When I read the title "Aurora Borealis", I knew it was from you.

Thanks again for sharing.

Great stuff Ira, but then you give new meaning to the phrase "UP NORTH". I wish they looked like that way down here in Northern Wisconsin.
