One of the exciting things about having a window that doesn't look into the back of some house and a hillside, is that I can see things like this. It sounds like we just missed the Northern lights last night, but when I looked out my window at about 5 am (thanks to the powers of hungry cats), this is what I saw. So, I went for a short walk down the hill to try to take some pictures. I just brought my little point and shoot, but in retrospect, I should have probably brought my real camera. It'll take some getting used to after a summer of pointing and shooting and carrying around a camera whose weight is measured in g rather than lb.
