Nothern lights!

7/17/12- Two nights ago Sawbill crew was lucky enough to catch a beautiful northern lights show. The northern lights or aurora borealis is the charged atmosphere as a result of tremendous energy being ejected from the sun. The energy from the flare rushes towards our atmosphere and charges it up. When we see the northern lights we are seeing the sparks in the atmosphere from the charging.
