The Northern Lights

I spotted this video over on Hither and Thither and couldn't resist sharing it. It is a slight departure from the norm here on The Feminist Mystique, but seriously - how amazingly beautiful?!

The Aurora from TSO Photography on Vimeo.

Have you ever seen the northern lights? I've only seen them once, while on a nighttime horseback ride on an Ojibwa reservation in North Dakota. While not as spectacular as the lights in the video, they were incredibly beautiful. Combined with the crisp summer night air, the stars, and the sound of horse hooves as we galloped across the plains, it made for a most magical night.

Apparently, the northern lights will peak in 2013, so start planning your vacation to Alaska!

P.S. B$ - This made me think of you. I hope you have a great (long) day! xoxo.


  1. Yes! I saw them once from the cockpit of a B777...on my way to Shanghai!
    I was working the flt (of course) and the pilots called from the cockpit and asked me to come up there ASAP. It was beautiful...with all the glass of the cockpit, away from all the city lights...just us, the stars and the northern lights!

  2. Also...I love the music...just recently downloaded this's from the movie Gladiator...with Russel Crowe.

  3. You know I love the lights! Can't wait to actually see them one day. It's also amazing to watch the earth slowly rotate and the stars move across the sky.
