My family and I enjoyed the afternoon and evening celebrating the arrival of the Winter Solstice and an early Christmas with family! Heading home, we witnessed a storm level display of Aurora Borealis dancing across the northern sky and reaching for the south east! There was a great deal of 'rubber-necking' from each of us as we gasped in amazement! Yes, I was chomping at the bit to get home and grab my camera ... and eventually I did! I took a bit of a gamble and drove further down the road to this old school house ... still rubber-necking as I watched in amazement at the aurora display out my side window! There are no words to describe watching this phenomena and it is truly something one should experience with their own eyes! No matter how many times I have watched the Aurora, the next showing is still like a gift!
I'd have to say the Winter Solstice had a sizzling display for its grand entrance! I guess we can officially welcome Winter!
