No Better Feeling

Look as you like into the most frequent but still outdated satellite images, untrustworthy cloud prediction maps, and as skeptical as ever changing forecasts will make you through the week, there has to be some blind trust in this. What other choice do we have.
So we think we’ve got it figured out, but travelling under cloud for dozens of kilometres leaving Yellowknife, there’s always that doubt in the back of your mind about this. But then the cloud bank just ends over a few kilometres and you’re in the clear. Literally in the clear. And the aurora is there waiting.
There’s no better feeling.

And in the first photo, can we just take a moment to appreciate the aircraft flying just to the right of the aurora leaving a curved vapour trail behind it? I think that’s pretty awesome.
