The Solar Minimum Slide and Deeper Appreciations
In the last few nights, there have been glimpses of colour, momentary bursts of movement if you're watching carefully and your eyes are good, which you hope for of all your guests. Sometimes those moments pass so quickly by the time you tell them where to look, that shimmering curtain has calmed. Solar minimum is humbling, but it's good that way. Beneath a full moon and above snow drifts deep enough to wade through, gentle green arcs line the horizon. It's exactly how tonight began, and then sparked by perhaps a 45 minute change in conditions, chaos above us ensued. Entire ribbons were vibrantly pink and the movement was so fast you could never describe it.
