    Alaska's Nightlight

    In March of 2013, my Dad and I took a trip to Alaska to go see the Aurora Borealis, A.K.A. the Northern Lights. On March 31st we final saw them in all their glory in a remote town named Wiseman, Alaska located 65 miles above the Arctic Circle. They first appeared as a faint green line running from north to south, but then in a blink of an eye they exploded in activity and started dancing across the sky in different shades of pink, red and green. After putting on a show for more than two hours, the show was finally over as the started to fade back into the darkness of the Alaskan night sky. Being from Texas and not being able to see the Northern Lights, you truly don't know how beautiful they are until you see them in person.
