We're in the middle of one of the largest displays of the northern lights in decades, has anyone gotten a good look at them? From what I've read online they are visible as far south as Texas which is amazing.
Last night I got the opportunity to watch them for about 1 hour as we flew from New England to Ohio. I had never seen them before and it was breath taking. From horizon to horizon they filled the sky. Sometimes in bands, sometimes in large billowing shapes. Just amazing. There was even some pretty good color at one point as most of the sky took a brilliant red hue. It was funny to listen to the pilots on frequency as they missed radio calls due to staring out the window at the Northern Lights. Of course that never happened to us.
Tonight I'm on a short flight to Chicago and back so I'm really hoping to see them again. Very cool.
