Powerful storm activity on our sun = pretty lights in our northern skies. If it had been one of those near zero frigid sort of days we likely would have had a clear night. Alas, temperatures warmed a bit leaving us with horizon to horizon overcast. I've observed the Aurora Borealis here in SD only a couple of times before and really hoped to camp out in my backyard to watch for the lights. Maybe drag my son out to witness the Goddess's fireworks. Even the moon cooperated! But the clouds did not.
