The Long Game
We left town with adequate clear skies above us, so a long drive to put some distance between us and the approaching clouds wasn’t immediately necessary, but we were playing the long game tonight. An arc of aurora stayed right above us through our drive, and if you can’t escape into altogether clear skies, then this is the way to be. A cloud bank growing on the horizon, and an auroral break-up towering above, swirling and dancing. The perspective is beautiful.
Our timing was at the least, very, very fortunate - getting settled outside just a few minutes before she started to dance. Then as the aurora wound down some time later, the clouds covered us up making it an easy decision to begin the drive back home. It was a perfect script.
