Northern Lights over Dunvegan Bridge

We’ve been missing some spectacular northern lights due to smoke and cloud cover lately, but at least we can still have a look at some from a few years ago.  Check out this too short video time lapse of the aurora borealis with Dunvegan Bridge below.  How much more Peace Country could you get?

  1. I remember seeing northern lights just like those in the video. They reminded me of green and purple velour theater curtains waving back and forth at the same time as they stalked up and down like men on stilts.

      That is a perfect way to describe them! Did you whistle to make them dance?

      • To be honest, I ran back into the house because I gave myself the creeps, imagining that they were huge ghosts walking across the sky. This was when I was a child. I’m braver now.

        Ha ha, that sounds like a good story for your blog! There is certainly something supernatural about them, especially the way they just hover for a while growing gradually less faint and then suddenly the shimmer rips across the sky on that corridor of vague glow.

    Just moved into town from Ontario for work in the Hospital! I hope I’ll get a chance to experience seeing the Northern Lights soon! I look forward to meeting everyone at some point!

      Welcome to the area 🙂 If you want to know when to look for northern lights, so you don’t have to stand outside for hours in the cold, check out aurorawatch.ca. It’s a site from the U of A that tracks auroral activity and you can even sign up to receive an email when chances are good that you’ll see northern lights.

      Thanks for visiting the blog!
