Hmmm.. might actually see something with the city lights? Last time I saw some aurora was about 5 years ago... It was cool. [Smile] Maybe if I have trouble sleeping I'll check it out tonight!

Alas, nothing for me, here. Maybe it's too early. But I think the real reason may be too much light pollution to the northeast of me from the city.

BooBooKitty_______________________Tonights display some times looked like light cloud cover but if you had continued to watch they might have changed.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
