Waiting for the Aurora

Great Bear ii

…but found the Great Bear.

The Aurora Borealis was forecast to be seen over Metro Vancouver tonight. It’s now 2:30 in the morning and I think I’ll call it a night and be happy with the Great Bear, seen in a beautiful night sky, a sky that has linked our humanity since the beginning of time.


  1. This post made me smile. My daughter and I got up three or four times in the night, hoping to see the Northern Lights, but we were too far south for a view, and the it didn’t help that the moon was so bright. But your photo is beautiful, and I felt a kinship with someone who is willing to lose a little sleep to view one of this world’s marvels.
