June 22nd and 23rd the Northern lights have been visible. On Monday night, the skies were clear and they were reported to be visible all the way to Kansas. My nephews girlfriend noticed them outside her place and quickly grabbed the camera. She got several very good shots. She agreed to let me share two of them with you.
If you look closely you can see the purples, whites and greens glittering through the skies! I have seen the Northern lights in person once when I lived in Wisconsin. I was driving and they were shining so brilliantly that I pulled off to the side of the road and watched them. Sadly, I didn't have my camera with that day.
Tuesday night the news anchors all seemed to be saying that the lights would be best between 11:30 PM and 1 AM. So I stayed up late and drove out to the country. All that I got to see was the clouds filtering back and forth over the half moon and a bank of clouds across the Northern sky. Oh well, maybe another day. Thanks Kelsey for sharing the photos with us!
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
