I lived in Alaska for 4 years and the northern lights are amazing! I can say the most impressive part (to me anyway) was the fact there was NO noise! It was a great light show, with the wavy curtains of multi-colors in the night sky. Makes me wish I was back in Fairbanks.

Thanks Jack. I gotta get up north and see them sometime before I die.

It's what you actually see. I've seen it a couple of times on the plane to Japan.

Saw some great aurora pics on TV from Scotland last night. Someone who has seen one tell me something - when you see "curtains" of light moving across the sky, is that what you actually see, or is that time-lapse video?

We all love those wireless links, but there is still a major role for copper and especially optical fiber.
