What was: Day 28 - Things Seen

Guess what I saw tonight? Northern lights. I truly cannot describe it. Floating on this boat, standing on the helicopter pad where there's no lights, there is nothing around us and you can feel the boat swaying over this glassy water. This green light takes up a huge part of the sky, like an enormous rainbow. They say they will get much brighter - maybe see some different colors - and they'll dance. You can see them slowly moving now, it's incredible. Unfortunately I can't seem to make a decent photo - I'll see what I can do in the future.

We are about to reach 60 degrees north - not so long until the Arctic Circle.
