And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Monday Night Lights

So, first up, I hope you saw the Northern Lights tonight. I'm glad I made it home in time to get Bette out on the deck to seem some of the red lights. There were bluish greens on the way home, with some pillars in there. Unfortunately I was driving without a place to stop and take a look. This was the first time I'm sure I've seen the Northern Lights. And I'm glad I could share it with Bette. Wow. It wasn't the sheets, but still pretty damn cool.

Next up was second lecture test at school. We had 75 questions and I got 73 correct. I confused my Introns with my Exons, and I don't remember the other question. I think it was on ribosomal enzymes. Anyway, I think that gives me a 97%. There were no extra credit questions (and only 1 point available so far). I think that gives me around 98% total (the grading this semester is kinda squiggly, so it's hard to figure out).

I saw them once while on a canoe/camping trip in northern Minnesota. They looked like moonlit clouds moving around really fast. Somewhat monochrome but still beautiful nonetheless.

I think they were much more vibrant on the drive home (I actually saw a reflected glow on a bridge and was wondering where that light came from, N was behind me). And that's sort of what the red lights looked like. Although the moon doesn't make anything red.
