Dipping the split-pea soup?

Last night I received a phone call at 12:45 AM. That call was made per my request.  The Northern lights were starting to dance. I had told a friend to call me anytime she saw the lights dancing. I started out by taking pictures from the front step. As you can see the tree was in the way.

From there I moved to the end of the driveway. That was the perfect spot.  There I was at 1 AM standing close to the end of the driveway in my pajamas (praying hard that no one would drive by.) Doesn't it look like the big dipper is going to drop into some split-pea soup?

It started getting cold. I ran inside and grabbed a blanket. It was a good thing that no one drove by. They would have said "what a goof ball!"

I headed in about 1:45 AM as the lights were fading.  I saw online that they spiked again around 4:30. According to the solar activity report, tonight could be another active night.
