I've always wanted to see the Aurora Australis. But I'm to far north, and winter is nearly over down here..

Now imagine couple of Eskimo lying on snow and watching it. Who know what goes trough their minds when they seen it. Gods, ancestors, ghosts, forcess...How did they feel? Fear...Comfort...

I live in Southern California, and in all my life I've only ever seen one small Aurora Borealis.
