Here are the pics of Northern lights- taken by Peter Ridout, from my beach
area- on the sept 23rd- a few days after I returned home from the Northwest
Passage trip- and the Northern Lights of Greenland and the Ilulissat Glacier
You can see the island Giants Tomb- that I have taken- in day light, and at
sunset when the sky turns a lavender blue – pink- purple .
There are a few lights at the island- as people camp out here till the snow
and the lake freezes . Then, when the lake freezes- they are out again on
snow mobiles- doing the same thing !!- day time ofcourse .
31613 and 8773.– the lights on the island a nicely seen here .
We have NO street lights and so, we have real dark skies to stargaze —
which I do !
I navigate my self in the skies , when ever we have a clear night !
I have see the Northern Lights quite a few times, during the 27 yrs I have
lived here .
The best was in nov- 2001 or 2002- forget which — I did not take photos-
there was NO digital magic at that time —
it was an Aurora Oval– that danced in the sky for over and hour
–Spectacular is the word !!
The whole neighbour hood gathered on my beach to watch this spectacle !
Hope you like my Tales of Northern Lights !
