Do you see an Aurora every night?

In my previous post, the Creation of Science, I mentioned the astronomy lecture that I attended with my son, Julius.  Footage of Aurora’s were also presented and the explanation of them.  Why they occur for us to see is amazing.  Check it out…Aurora Borealis.

Praise the Lord, my soul.
Lord my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment;
he stretches out the heavens like a tent. Psalm 104:1-2

The order in which God has given the universe is beyond my comprehension.  It is phenomenal.

Aurora’s are truly a sight to behold.

I remember when I saw an Aurora Borealis for the first time.  Considering where I was located, I don’t think I should have seen it, but it rippled through the night sky like a giant crayon being colored on paper.  Hues of purple and pink.  It was beautiful to witness.

Now, back to the lecture.  When it came time for questions, my son raised his hand high.  Being called on he asked Mr. Manning, “Do you see an Aurora every night?”

“No, it’s impossible,” began his explanation.

Julius interjected, “I see one every night.”  A smile crept over his face.

The retired astrophysicist looked puzzled and asked why was he asking that question.

A friend of ours in the crowd caught onto my son’s question/statement and started to laugh.

That’s his sisters name.

Julius sees an Aurora every night.

Joy welled in my heart as my son boldly shared with everyone in that room that his sister is beautiful and he sees that beauty every day.  Just being able to tell you makes me smile.  That was an unforgettable moment.

So here’s my question to you.

Do you see an Aurora every night? Someone that brings joy to your life by being a part of your life?  

Now, an astronomy question for you- have you ever witnessed the lights of an Aurora? How did it make you feel?  What colors did you see?
