I want to see the Aurora Borealis! I LOVE astronomy and it’s events. When I visited a friend in Australia, I made a point of stargazing in a dark place one evening. Even on my first night in town, I was shocked by how I quickly noticed that the stars looked so DIFFERENT! I never realized how automatically I picked out constellations, I blame my father for taking me out star-gazing when I was a young’un. So SpecSO and I are sketching out a few days up in Canada to see the Northern Lights in September. Hence the links about them! Add any resources, suggestions, or stories about your sky experiences in the comments!
