You must be further up north than we down here on the seacoast of Virginia.
It has been many years since I have seen the northern lights up in Keflavik, Iceland.
The first time I had gone into the movies in the daylight but when I got out the sun had fallen and there they were. It was creepy the first time. I expected some kind of music it was so strange....but silence.
I got assustomed to them after that night and the colours were fanastic as the beam would weave to and fro in the night sky...back and forth like a coloured snake..but the rays..were straight up and down ..like vertical...straight lines...very unusual.
I have never forgotten them but it has been years now.
Yes ..they are something to see if you've never experienced such.
Oh..and welcome to the boards..
