ME --Maine - how exciting. I try to watch for the lights in southern Wisconsin, but seldom successful.  IF I do see any, they are so hard to see.  All kinds of weather things are changing, maybe I ought to camp out (in the car, it's 12 below zero this morning) and watch.. but every night… Naaa, I'll just watch for them on WU.  Thanks for posting this glorious image.  And welcome.  Keep it up.
