Ever since I travelled , I always wanted to see northern lights. Even after being in Kiruna for 2 weeks in christmas, no sign of it made me quite sad, but I knew, mother nature will bless me. And after all the anticipation, today it happened. I experienced Northern lights….. I cannot tell you how grateful I am! It is an unearthly earthly experience…( yes, you heard right)…
When I saw the Kiruna all-sky camera at around 10 o’clock at night, there are bands of aurora , we ran to the balcony ignoring -10 degree. And with hands freezing, cheek burning, we saw the green band expanding , waving through the sky, reaching the horizon, turning into pink ….and it was all worth freezing in cold. I am amazed and grateful , I have this experience. So I wanted to share with you immediately…
“Oh, it was wild and weird and wan, and ever in camp o’ nights
We would watch and watch the silver dance of the mystic Northern Lights.
And soft they danced from the Polar sky and swept in primrose haze;
And swift they pranced with their silver feet, and pierced with a blinding blaze.
They danced a cotillion in the sky; they were rose and silver shod;
It was not good for the eyes of man ‘Twas a sight for the eyes of God”
[ROBERT SERVICE, “The Ballad of the Northern Lights”]
