We Sink

One of the things that makes Yellowknife, along with places like northern Norway and Lapland, such a perfect place to experience the aurora is our position underneath the auroral oval. Which means on nights of very, very quiet conditions, the aurora will still appear in the visible sky to us.
Tonight was one of those very, very quiet nights. 
So sure, you cannot deny a little bit of a sinking feeling comparing tonight to last, but you also cannot deny the perfection, beauty and wonder of even the most gentle aurora and a clear night country sky.
