The Northern Lights (The Aurora Borealis)

Have a look at these amazing pictures of the Aurora, seen this week over Scotland and the North of England.
More photos at:
A friend of mine in Scotland tells me that over the last 2 days, he has seen the Aurora Borealis in the sky over where he lives.I'm green with envy because as well as Cape Horn, the Southern Cross, and the launch of the Space Shuttle, the Northern Lights are one of the things I'd most like to see in this life. I read that the lights are gases of the Solar wind blowing towards the earth, and burning up as they reach our atmosphere. One of the natural wonders of the world.
