Aurora Dreaming on a Saturday Night

I still haven't ever seen fireflies (except on Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean ride) but I've experienced the aurora borealis.  

A few years back our dog started howling at night--turns out she was saving us from the awesome red lights spread across the northern sky! I brought her inside and spent hours standing outside myself.  And here I thought I'd have to spend some time in Alaska.  

I'm hoping the near future sunspot activity might just possibly send me another glimpse of the aurora.  Maybe.  

Until then, I can always dream that I'm in Lapland.
