Dreams are made of this.....When the Lights Fell from the Heavens.

By awhyu  
Since I was a 5 year old, I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis, we had two nights worth of level 2, and I was already very happy to see
a childhood dream come true! However, what happened on the third night was well a truly unforgettable experience.

We were at the hotel ready for dinner, but I and Brens Photo dashed out, knowing our stomach's can wait, but the lights cant! As mentioned previously, many expletives came out,
A KP10 level aurora display was developing right in front of our eyes, this was going to be a very long and magical night!

A dream that well and truly came true, and I am counting the good fortune of being there at the right time and right place to see this, and one of my favourite constellations is in view too Orion The Hunter
with the gaseous nebula around the belt.
