    That is so neat! It's been years since I've seen anything like it- bet we're too far south now, but maybe since there is no light pollution here......

    I'm in Northern Minnesota. I love them and have seen some great displays. In the early 90's we had one some so bright that we could fish at night without lights. The entire sky was lit up. Going out now to take a look before bed, but I bet tomorrow night will be better.

    Same old, same old story here.
    Overcast.

    Does it every single time something neat like this is going on. Remember the Hale-Bott comet? It snowed and was overcast every single night except for the last night. It was -35 below zero.
    Meterorite showers? Only one I saw was by accident. Was suppose to go again the next night. Overcast.

    let me know how it goes.
