The northern lights make noise?? You must elaborate on this one for me. I am beyond curious! Most Seriously!

Sounds like a nice subject for a post, HF6.

We'd see (and) hear them a *lot* some summers at Drum. Beautiful greens and blues, but there was too much noise pollution (crickets, frogs and city-guys asking "Wottinell's *that* up there?") to hear them.
