January 9/10: Chasing the aurora

Today–well, last night/very early this morning, I was thankful that I have friends and family who are totally willing to go chasing a clear horizon in hopes of seeing the aurora borealis. Tuesday’s huge solar flare meant promises of a spectacular northern lights show last night. Unfortunately, Calgary was covered by a blanket of cloud with just the horizons showing clear skies. We drove around all of SW-NW-NE Calgary in hopes of catching a break in the clouds but no go. Despite not being able to see anything, it was a good time to chat and catch up :)

Anyways, this is what we had hoped to see…

  1. It’s ALWAYS cloudy wherever I am whenever there’s supposed to be an aurora. Sigh. =)
