There's a huge place in my heart for sunsets and auroras. I am a huge fan of them but I don't think people appreciate them as much as they should. Most people I know aren't really stunned at all and i've got to say, it does bother me a little.

Anyway. Post pictures of sunsets and auroras. Here's one I found on the internet a few days ago. This is definitely one of my favourite sunset pictures of all time.



Beautiful.

Here are some other ones I've got:









And here's one of my back garden (it's not a great picture but you had to be there to appreciate it. It was a really nice sunset - too bad the picture doesn't show it)

GoodNite_AmyLee, I agree. Luckily I live Alaska and I get to see the northern lights first hand all the time. You can't appreciate them in a picture. When you see them dancing around with pink and blue tips. GNAH! Its so beautiful. Almost as beautiful as Amy Lee herself.

You would like the summers here too because you can actually watch the sun circle around you on the horizon.

Sorry I don't have any but they are pretty much the only reason I'll go for a walk. I've never seen an aurora before they look pretty sweet, what causes them?

It's something to do with ions in the atmosphere being ionised and the different ions which correspond to different elements give off different colours.

But thats a bit of a stab in the dark, as I don't remember a lot of my chemistry lessons

Oddly enough, they were visible here in Kansas like a month ago I think. It was really cool, and eerie.

Yea, I was shocked to find that pic of one in Winsconsin my first reaction was "o_O"...

I want to see one first hand as well.





And I just ahd the coolest thought.... an entire concert held under the Aurora Borealis... like Opeth, with a lot of songs with soft parts in them or something....something soothing, just one big concert during the night, minimal light on the artists, just enough to see them and that's all then, and have this music under the lights....

That would be so awesome....

Yeah man, living in the north kicks ass. I don't know what life would be like when you walk out your door at sunset and not see the glow on the mountain, or walk outside at midnight to see the lovely swagger of the northern lights...life is good.

I currently doing a Musical Project (15 songs + 4000 words essay - school work) that mentions about sunset, sunrise, dawn, dusk and aurora throughout (although the theme isn't any of those)

Amazing pictures btw

Not COMPLETELY, but from what I understand, they come in seasons, or something like it, from September throught October and from March through April.

I know it would be cold as well, but I'd stand/sit out there to see it happen.

The way I came about Aurora's is through a book called Northern Lights (part of the "His Dark Materials Trilogy, including the Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass, Lyra's Oxford and soon to be The Book of Dust). Northern Lights is about a girl, Lyra who finds a city in the Aurora and literally walks through into another world. Please read it - best 4-part series I have ever read.

Anyway, keep up with the pictures. Here are some more I've found on Yahoo. (Yahoo pictures of sunsets are better than Google, despite what you might think).

I've read those books, absolutely amazing, one of my favourite series. Personally I'd call it a 3-part series (the main triology) and the other books are more spin-offs.

Did you know they've re-named Northern Lights? New copies are called The Golden Instrument. Apparently the publishers wanted to give the titles a theme (eg. The *insert adjective* *insert noun*).

Really? I thought the British version was called, Northern Lights, whereas the US version was called, The Golden Compass. Well, either way - I agree, amazing books. The Book of Dust will come out soon. I used to have a fansite that got pretty big if you remember it - www.cityofmagpies-citagazze.com. It doesn't exist anymore, but it was pretty big and in any case it's unlikely you've heard of it.

When I was a kid and went to school, I had a real dumb form tutor.
He thought that the skies in holiday brochures were airbrushed and not real
But the sky really can be that blue, or that pink, purple and orange.
It really makes me cry, even to this day.
