Being Thankful for Beauty

Have you ever seen the Northern Lights?
If you remember the movie Brother Bear, they went to where the light touched the sky...

We haven't been there, but in our email box was the newest pictures circulating about them and the natural phenomena in Idaho.

Here is the Northern Lights or Aurora.
Auroras are natural light displays in the sky, usually observed at night, particularly in the polar regions.

In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas.

The aurora borealis most often occurs near the equinoxes; from September to October and from March to April. The northern lights have had a number of names throughout history but the Cree people call this phenomenon the "Dance of the Spirits."

On the Idaho/ Washington state border, a Fire Rainbow was captured in the sky on film.

Clouds have to be cirrus, at least 20.000 feet in the air, with just the right amount of ice crystals and the sun has to hit the clouds at precisely 58 degrees.

We are thankful for all the amazing things created that enable us to see such beauty.
