If you’ve spent any time at all in the far north (or even Edmonton), you know that any sort of light in the dead of winter is appreciated. Maybe that’s why we get excited over the Northern Lights. I spent a year in Yellowknife in my early twenties, and I still remember waking up in the wee hours to an illuminated apartment and realizing the night sky was aglow.
I am not telling you all this to make you jealous, but to let you know that you too can take in the surreal beauty of aurora borealis with out leaving the warmth of your southern home and even better without freezing your butt off.
