Northern lights in Svalbard northern Norway (internet photo)
We are now into the countdown to the Winter Solstice and then it’s Christmas. Pitch dark at 6 a.m. and then when I looked out at about 6:40 it was as if I was seeing the Northern Lights – a hint of yellow and green along the horizon line. Sunrise wasn’t due until 7:30. Lovely. A prelude to a clear and cold sunny day here in Seattle.
