Northern (well – Southern) Lights

We just came back from a midnight viewing of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).  It was one of the things we -really- wanted to see, and it was awesome.  The cool thing is that because we are so far north, you actually look south so they are more like the Southern Lights.  Unfortunately the only camera we have is our Sony HD video camera which has a CMOS sensor, so doesn’t pick-up low-light very well at all, hence no pictures.  I wish I brought a SLR camera with adjustable exposure.

    Hey guys — just wanted to say that I’m totally jealous of this kick-ass adventure. The thing with the gas line sounded scary (it scared me and I’m sitting here all cozy in San Francisco). Glad the teams are taking good care of each other. The photo from the arctic circle is a keeper [Stevan, how come no pic sporting the guns?].

    Still following along… =-)
