So Deep....

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I almost expect to hear deep bass sounds, or feel deep vibrations too low for the human ear. The suspended curtains undulate so gracefully across the night sky, often so complex that you'd swear they have life of their own...

Even though i was driking vodka cocktails (of sorts) at the icehotel when i saw the northern lights last ( a couple years ago now) i don't remember hearing any sound from the auroras, mind you i don't remember much of that day!! Superb aurora capture KT, congrats on AC.

Oh THANKS SO MUCH Steve, Gil, Tad, Steve, Timothy, Wilma, Larry, Rodney, Shirley and meto234! And thank you Approvers!

I can't say that I've ever heard crackling, though I think I have heard a kind of hissssss... but it could be wishful imagination. The more I pay attention to that, the more I think it is wishful thinking.

But... strange things happen in an Arctic night, and the human mind is a most powerful thing, capable of changing 'reality'.

To paraphrase:
Deep bass sounds amongst the light
Vibrations too low for human ears.
Suspended curtains dancing gracefully across the dark night
Celebrating a life of their own with untold years.
AC Congrats!

Maybe they are alive? I have only seen these a couple times in my life, but it really was amazing. I thought I oculd hear a sort of crackling sound. We had one event here years ago with enormously tall curtains all in red. Very strange and other worldly. Almost scary in a way.

Aha! The musician in you will out! The sense are so intricately linked, that shape, light, sound, and touch are all awakened by the intensity of experiencing just one. Kudos, Katy, and AC congratulations to you. (I think I can even smell ozone when I look at this!)

OOHHHHHH Awesome!!! You know I swear I heard sounds from auroras in Circle. Maybe I was hallucinating from the cold lol. But I have read of others who say they can hear them too. Ever read a biography of Kristian Birkeland?

Very nice, Katy! You caught the treetops and a good collection of stars as well - of course you deserve the AC. And the forecast is for better northern lights this weekend - I'm waiting for you to catch some red :)
