Spectators, heavy parkas, cameras, frozen hands, searching for an auroral show.
Look Northward viewers!
The concert of sky music begins: a quiet, still grey arc stretches across the horizon.
This powerful image commands the audience to give themselves over to the master.
We are in the presence of a virtuoso.
A brightening forms: green glow warms the sky.
Arc coils and swiftly moves along nighttime sky.
A moment of quiet pause: perhaps there is no more.
Three green streamers appear to float lazily in the breeze like crepe paper floating from a maypole.
Activity in the sky symphony suddenly becomes charged with movement played Adagio, with great power.
Green-fringed curtains tipped with red move rapidly across the horizon forming directly overhead.
Breathtaking, heart-stopping moments: enveloped in a celestial dome of lights,
Enticing us to touch the crown before disappearing to the background orchestra of stars and arc.
